Mike,

The holes would have to be really big to enable you to use even #4 binder cord to do the weaving. How big are the ones on the chair you are considering? A simple rectangle or square stool might be better to try on before attempting a chair.

    Hello Caners! Am wondering if anyone has used binder cane to weave chair seats with the 7 step method? 4,5 or 6 mm cane. Mike Hefley Murrells Inlet, SC

        Good morning! Don’t have a specific project for this. Just wondering the community’s experience? Currently caning a rocker with 3 mm for the seat. Thank you ma’am, Mike Hefley Murrells Inlet, SC

      Hi Mike, I've used it one time. If I remember correctly, if was the 4 mm. It was super easy and the chair is still going strong! Very unusual to have this size cane. Never have had another one. Patti
