For this BB, you will weave a seat for a chair or stool.
"Wicker," "caned," and "woven" are popular terms for chairs on which reed or fiber webbing forms either the seat or the back of the chair. These terms are often used interchangably, but when they need repair it's important to understand which one you're working with.
Woven chair seats are made with rope or wider binding strands than caned seats. These are woven around the seat frame rungs. Also called a wide binding cane seat, porch cane, or binder cane seat, this technique creates a double layer of cane. The following articles and videos will show you how to weave a chair seat.
To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
