What is Cane Webbing? Cane webbing is pre-woven cane made by machine from strands of chair cane. It is primarily used for re-seating cane chairs that have a groove around the seat opening rather than drilled holes. It is also used on cabinet doors.
The cane webbing is held in place in the groove with the proper size spline and glue. We recommend our Canecraft glue. On cabinet doors the cane webbing can be glued and stapled to the back and then finished with a molding to cover the staples.
To determine the size of webbing required measure from the outside edges of the groove at the widest part, front to back and side to side. For example: if your seat measures 15” x 16” form groove to groove then you should order a piece 17” long by 18” wide.
We stock the cane webbing in 50’ rolls by various widths ranging from 12” to 48” Not all the patterns are available in all the widths. The available widths per pattern are listed under that particular pattern.
The mesh size on the traditional patterns is determined by measuring the distance from the center of one hole to the center of the next hole.
If you are unsure of the cane webbing please send us a sample and we will match it. Instructions for installing the cane webbing will be included with your order.
