BASKETRY: Pre-Woven Cane & Spline Reed

If the opening you want to cane has a groove all the way around it, you need to press a sheet of pre-woven cane into that groove with wedges, and secure it with spline. A caning chisel cleans out old cane and spline from the groove.

PRE-WOVEN CHAIR CANE
Half-inch fine/open mesh, natural color. To figure how much you need, measure the opening from groove to groove, back-to-front and side-to-side, and add two inches to each dimension. Sold by running inch or foot.

SPLINE REED
Used to secure pre-woven cane to the groove in seat or panel; you need enough to go around and a little extra. Spline is also used for basket rims and handles. It is another rattan product, but it is cut from the inside of the vine, and is not shiny. Put up in 600 foot hanks, in 6 foot lengths. Sold by the running foot or by the hank. Refer to the chart to determine what size you need. "Groove size" refers to the width across the top of the channel the spline will wedge into.
