Help & questions by phone or direct email
Suitable only for chairs with a groove or channel in them, not drilled holes
This is a replacement kit for recaning a chair that has "pressed" cane in it, which means it must have a groove or channel around the area to be replaced. This kit will not be suitable for chairs that have drilled holes. A few household items will be needed to complete a finished seat such as a small amount of glue and a straight slot screwdriver. The kit includes a fresh, new piece of 18" square cane, 1 piece, #6 (4.25mm) spline, which fits into the groove in the chair and holds the cane in place. 5 wood wedges and complete instructions. This kit will replace a seat up to 17" square. Please double check the last 2 photos provided to see if your chair is pressed cane. The first photo shows what the area should look like with caning installed - there should be a smooth strip or bead of spline around the outside edge of the seat. The second photo shows a chair with the seat removed. It should have a groove or channel in the chair, not drilled holes. The size cane included in this kit is labeled as ** 1/2" open" which means therre is 1/2" from center of one hold to the center of the next hole. If you are trying to match old caning, please check the pattern size before you order. Again - PLEASE double check the measurements for the area you are recaning, it can not be any larger than 17" square. If you feel your item to be recaned has an unusually large groove width in it, please contact us with the measurements to be sure this kit will work for your project. Please note*****Any returns must be made within 30 days of purchase date.
