I have a great tip I have not seen in Blogland.
I revolves around my next project. You will see a glimpse of it here.
I have these chairs.....
BUT I got to thinking that was going to be a lot of work and material.....Could I do anything else? hmm
Then I thought of the way I redid these chairs.
Well while I was pondering this Mr. Sensible was as well. We both came up with the same idea if we could get the caning out we would be where we wanted to be. First we tried to pry the reed out of the channel that holds the caning. That didn't work, it was wedged in there REALLY well. Then we thought if we could cut off the caning using a razor blade knife and sand down the reed that might work.
THEN we thought of this baby.....
the tool we got for Christmas last year. (I believe a few bloggers have been giving this away and I must say it is so worth getting.) I have not been compensated by Dremel for this blog, but let me say its handy!
Notice the picture is blurry he never stops not even for a picture :)
Then we popped that reed right out, where we could, cut it down level with the chair where it wouldn't come out. Took the caning out for sure.
Now I can move forward with this project... Stay tuned.
Have a great week.
