Dude- Thanks again! You really don't know how much I appreciate that link!
Not only for the purpose you intended, but I have been looking for a place that had a chair repair kit like they have.
Can't wait to tell my father-in-law as he is attempting to repair an odd rocking chair that was, at one time, in the White Houseand was uncovered in my shed.
(The former owner of my house - and my long time neighbor - was an upolsterer.) I threw out more crap than you can imagine and gave away more upolstery tools than I knew. But the chair we kept, knowing it's alleged history. Now maybe we can do something with it! Cool.
Thanks again, Dude.

I'm reviving this thread as it's the only place I've found a discussion about bending rattan. Has anybody tried the saoking method with around 1" diameter rattan in fairly long (7') lengths? I'm refurbishing a portion of the Alibi here in Portland and I'd like to use Rattan, but it's a curved surface, so I have to learn to be flexible. Success/horror stories anyone?
