The chair has the floor

Actually this chair is up on a table. I spent the winter, now into spring learning to cane. To say I am slow is an understatement. But I'm finally getting the hang of it. This is a friend's chair. Broken and handed over for me to practice upon. It is my hope to replace the cane on the seat and back so it matches. This winter project will probably carry me into the fall.

Awesome! Banjo playing, knitting, maple sugaring...you do such interesting stuff, PtCakes! :)

I'm jealous, what a great thing to learn! Keep us posted on your progress. Watching the man who does it at the farmer's market amazes me, so easy looking and yet - I would never get there if I tried.

Tammy H. sure you would. It is very straight forward, but time consuming. Especially when you (meaning me) can only spend a few hours a week working on it.

That is so cool. And you play the banjo too? I've always wanted to!
