5.0 out of 5 stars The only book you need to weave seats
One book that tells you EVERYTHING is The Caners Handbook by Bruce W. Miller and Jim Widess. It is the best I have found. A great book for beginners as well as pros like me who have been in the business for 20 years.
Published on 22 Jun. 1999

This review is from: The Caner's Handbook (Paperback)
Having searched in many books and online to find information for Blind/French Caning an friend remembered this book was the definitive handbook recommended 25 years ago, at her City and Guild Course for upholstery. I took the chance in buying it online
without seeing it, but it has information which I can now follow.
