  • Strong Scissors or knife



  • Start by cutting off the old woven seat and remove all the dust and debris. Use a good wood cleaner and allow to dry and then doused the wood with furniture oil.
  • Begin the weave by typing the rope to the rear railing on the seat and then began stringing it back and forth wrapping twice on each run. Tie off the end with a knot.
  • Start the horizontal weave by tying the hemp rope to the side rail and start weaving side to side, wrapping the hemp around the wood side rail twice on each run.
  • Pull the horizontal weaves as tight as possible to the front as you work to the rear. The hubby made this little tool by using a metal rod and black electrical tape and it worked extremely well to pull those weaves tight
  • Before tying off the rope, wrap the hemp around each side several times to fill in the gaps between the horizontal (side) runs.
