Cane Like a Colonist
If a desk chair were to break, a trip to Ikea might provide a replacement. In Colonial times, people fixed everything themselves. Fixing a chair was a lot easier than making one! In fact, any fifth-grader with weaving, knitting, or knotting experience can wrap up a mirror or photo frame the same way Colonists caned chairs. One tricky corner wrap is the key to caning like an American pioneer.
What You Need:
