While still cleaning out my garage since early last spring, I came across a lot of chair caning material. Once upon a time it was used for fronting custom-made radiator covers. Incidentally, plenty of You Tube instruction out there that might give you some unusual uses for it. The pieces are a decent size, the biggest measuring 20″ by 30″. Hopefully the photo gives an idea of just how much there is.
The caning is free. Hate to see this well preserved and practically defect-free material end up at the curb.
