Okay at this point you need to do any and all repair and refinishing. Make sure your joints in the chair frame have no
cracks or breaks in it. There is a lot of stress on the joints when you get your cane installed and spline in.
Here is one of the most important part of the procedure. Always allow at least 2 inches around the
grove in the chair frame. Mark a line to where you need to cut your cane to size. If you ordered a cut close to the size you may not have to trim the cane.
It is always better to have to much than to little. Lay your pre woven cane of the chair frame. Center it the way you want it to look when you are done.
