weaving a chair seat

I promised a very nice lady follower to show how to weave a chair. It is really very simple if you follow the drawing.

You will need to make a chair with a hollow seat.  See photos attached
To make the chair you need 1/4" square wooden strips cut as follows:
2 x 9 cm long
2 x 4 cm long
10 x 3.7 cm long
3 fancy tooth picks
Glue together as shown in the photos



Now you are ready for the weaving but you need to paint or stain first. After the paint is completely dry you can start weaving, using the chart in the photo.

I use regular crochet cotton with a wool needle.  I use two threads because the cotton I have is not thick enough. If  the threads are not long enough you add more and hide the loose ends beneath the seat.

I used a regular pencil sharpener to slightly shape the top ends of the chair. I am really pleased with the result this time and going to make another chair and maybe a little table for a Greek Island kind of scene.  I shall need Geranium pots, etc. Nice to have plans.

    הכסא מקסים. באיזה עץ את משתמשת? אפשר להשתמש בבלזה? אני חייבת לנסות.

  4. Hi Drora, your chair came out great. Thanks for sharing the weaving directions and your tips. I want to make a few stools with the same sort of seat. I hope that I can do them as nice as your chair.
