Our Splint Weaving Booklet has detailed instructions for weaving a chair like the one at right in the pattern shown. We include lots of illustrations so you’ll never wonder what we’re talking about. It’s easy and fun.
Splint seats have a long tradition in the United States, where they were woven with splints hewn from timber on the early settlers property. If you have an old family chair, you own a treasure. Keep it in good shape and it’ll last for generations.
