As I mentioned the other day I'm taking a class on caning. My project is caning a small footstool. Here's what I've completed so far. I think this might be a herringbone stitch. There are lots of other folks in the class doing some unique projects; different styles of chairs, larger footstools, and using different caning materials. Next Thursday I'll take my camera to class and take a few photos to show you.
Here's a side view so you can see the rungs at the bottom. Of course when I showed Gary photos of caning on google he started asking me questions I couldn't answer. Where does the caning come from? How did caning begin? Why was it developed? What can it be used for? I'll research these questions and more and report back here.

Then Gary said he wanted a king sized headboard that was caned and when could he expect it. Don't hold your breath Gary. He thought he invented that idea. I googled it, nope it's been done before. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
