Machine woven cane can be used when there is a groove routed in the seat or back frame of a chair. The caning is tapped into the groove, and glue is added. Then you tap in a piece of bamboo spline. NOTE: You CANNOT put this type of cane into a chair with holes drilled in the frame rather than a groove. That chair will require hand caning.
Strand cane is used when there are holes drilled in the seat or back frame of a chair. The pattern must be hand woven.
