What is press cane or sheet cane?

Press cane is a pre-woven cane.  It comes in several patterns but the most common is the simple six-way pattern found on most chairs.  It is prepared by soaking in hot water, then stretched across the opening , "tucked" into an edge groove, and then glued and secured with a wooden "spline" or wooden strip which is forced into the groove.  Left to dry it naturally tightens even more and is then colored if necessary.  You can tell if a seat is press cane by simple looking to see if there are holes drilled through the frame.  If there are no holes then it is a press cane seat.  If it has holes it is usually a hand cane seat or chair and needs to be hand caned.  Under certain circumstances an old hand cane chair has been "converted" to a press cane chair by having a groove routered or chiseled out along the holes in the frame.  Unfortunately the chair has to be done as press cane.
