Cane Back Chair – You can break the back cane chair subjected to stress, use, and age. Back cane chair comes in two different types, hand-woven, and commercially made weaving machine. Prewoven cane repairmen are more successful than those who tried a hand-woven cane. Hand weaving cane is a complicated and time-consuming enterprise that basically produces the same results as using prewoven cane. Since the finished project demonstrates little or no difference in skill when using cane prewoven, leave hand-woven cane to a professional restoration specialist.
Remove existing broken cane back chair with a flat blade screwdriver. Free the bond of the glue between the slot in the back of the chair and the cane. Clean old, hardened glue from the chair with a small spatula. Soak the prewoven rod in hot water for 30 to 40 minutes. Turn the chair on your back and center the new cane on the back of the chair.
Place a wedge of the cane on the reed and in the groove. Use a rubber mallet to set the wedge in place. Draw the taut prewoven of the cane and then press a wedge parallel to the first wedge. Continue around the edge of the chair behind in the same way. Leave the cane wedges in place for approximately two hours while the cane is dry. Soak spline, also known as an edge, in warm water for 10 minutes. Remove the cane back chair wedges with care so as not to disturb the rod. Run a bead of glue around the slit in which the wedges were held in place. Press the spline hard on the grain of the glue. Allow the glue to dry overnight.
