J2DOC1,

You really don't need to concern yourself with a "tight" pressed cane seat. Just be sure to start tamping the sheet cane into the center top and center bottom first. Then work your way out to the sides so you get the curve correct. Do each of the two sides, last.

When you install the spline, you may need to put a shim or thin piece of wood over the spline and clamp down so it doesn't pop out in the center or anywhere along the line. Take it slow and easy and all should be fine.
