Splint, Peel, & Hickory Weaves

All of the seats and backs done on this page, require weaving two sides. SPLINT material wraps around the tops of the dowel frame of the chair, over the sides, then across the bottom, and finally back up on top again. Tops & the bottoms of the seat then create 2 completely woven layers having a hollow area in between the 2 woven areas. Essentially meaning twice the work, for each seat or back.

Splint

How do you - I fix or repair chairs with hickory splint type seats or backs?

How to fix or repair chairs with hickory splint type seats or backs?

  True Splint is obtained from native ash and hickory and from tropical palm trees.  The native splint is cut from selected second-year growth timber with straight grain.  Ash splints, machine cut to a uniform width, wear very well.  Hickory splints often vary slightly in width, giving a pleasing effect.
  The tropical rattan palm tree from which materials like splint are made grows in the Indian Archipelago, China, India, Ceylon, and the Malay Peninsula.  Without its leaves it is known commercially as rattan.  The outer bark, stripped in different widths, is sold as cane; the core is split into round and flat strips of different thicknesses and widths, and is called reed.

  Rattan Reed Splint is a flat, woody material cut from the inside of the rattan palm, and used for splint basketry and weaving country style chair seats.  Traditionally splint was oak, ash, or hickory; today flat reed and flat oval reed are often substituted.

The Rustic old Hickory Chair above, we  only did the Seat.

   

Rattan Splint creates a very strong Durable and long lasting Splint Style woven Seat

Old Rustic Hickory Chairs;

Heavy 8-10mm Peel Binding Seats & Backs: These are some of the same style old rustic hickory chairs as shown above with a "Splint Seat," but these are instead woven with a very heavy duty wide 8-10mm wide peel binding material. They are quite strong and very durable seats.  This material is called "Peel" coming from the Peeled off Bark of Rattan.

Peel:   How do you fix or repair chairs with Peel seats or backs?

Below are pictures of weaves done with a much finer and more even 5mm Peel Binding. These are the most labor intensive seat that I do. (And the most expensive.)
