Woodworking and caning a chair: all in one project




This CANE CHAIR from Anika Gandhi (Anika's DIY life) was on my list to do for a while but the class was a little challenging to put together because of the cane and the stain and the time frame but if you are a woodworker, you usually like challenges so this is how the day went:

Each student got their own plan. You can get yours on Anika Gandhi's website.


We took a picture of the lumber because it is truly amazing when you can build a cool piece of furniture to take home after few hours. Not to mention that one of the students had never used tools except for a drill.

Checking measurement for each piece, marking the 2x3 for later cuts. Hint: REALLY measure twice, cut once. :)

Using the miter saw with confidence!

Double trouble on the Kreg to make our pocket holes.
