Thanks, Tiki Diablo.
Ok I got this chair at a flea market the other day. I always wanted one but
they cost a bunch. Till I saw this one it was trashed but it was cheap 8 bucks.
So here it is.
I will show the transformation as I go.




First take off all of the binder cane.
Take pictures of how it was so you can remember how it went on.

Tikiskip, your work is super and inspiring. Im thinking about getting that book. I would have thought that hanging rattan chair was beyond repair. Cant wait to see what you do with it.

That book is the best. Oh, and thank you. I hope it works.
This is my first chair like this.

Brush off all of the dirt on the chair.


It will look like this after.


Now pick a torch and flame it lightly. On ALL sides
No need to flame the parts that will be covered with binder.



It will look like this after the flaming. Don't burn it up.
Just a light touch will make the bleached out white look go away.
I tried sanding and steel wool. These did not help so for me this
was the best way.

Next shellac the whole chair. Even the parts that will be covered with binder cane.
This will help keep water/mold out. And give it a nice glow.




This is the binder cane. ie rattan. This is the skin on kind.
Some may have this skin taken off. I used one hank for this chair.
It cost about $22.00 for the cane.
You can get this at.www.RoyalwoodLtd.com Or
www.franksupply.com


Now you need to soak the binder cane in water. Put some liquid soap in the water to
help the cane stay limp while you work it. You better work it girl.
I wonder what Rue paul is doing right now?

Hey Matt. I have never heard it called that I don't know.
sneaky, I would not do this to 6 band rattan unless it was trash.
Hula cat, What? I guess I would say big fat chian.
This is old, And has been outside for a while so I don't think this will be used as a chair. More like for looks.

Aright cracker start rapin. It is best to pick out the longest cane in your bundle to go down the back of your chair so you don't need to put two pieces together.
First nail in the rattan. then start putting it on the way it came off. Overlap nails with the cane/ rattan to hide them.


Remember when you wrap this stuff if you go say right left right on one side.
You then need to go right left right on the other side.
ie keep it all the same, uniform nice and neat.
This is the hard part keeping it uniform.

When you have all of the cane on Let the cane dry 24 hours.
Then start flaming the cane.
This is where you could start a fire. be ready to blow it out.

Skip,
I'm definitely not doing it to my 6 band rattan set. I have alot of stuff I haven't shown on TC. A really nice machine age deco rattan desk I'm typing at now and a round table and a chair that came with the desk. They all were in good shape but had brown thick paint slathered on. I'll use some of the techniques here but don't worry, I wont use the burner... For that chair it looks awesome though!

Thanks again,
ST

Here is a picture of the cane shellaced with no burn, and one with
shellac and the burn. You need to try a small piece on the bottom
of your chair to see what you like best.
on this chair I tihnk the burn blends in better.

Good stuff. Maybe I can repair the peacock chairs we have instead of getting new ones... Well, if I find them for $20 again, it ain't worth the work. I never knew repairing these was possible.
