Inner tube chair seat caning

Tim shows you how to reseat a chair with old inner tubes – “Bike innertubes are a great material to cane a chair seat. It has a nice bouncy feel, is very comfortable and stylish. Use the normal Chinese or Korean innertubes you thought were made in the U.S.. They contain lots of lampblack and other stuff that makes them UV resistant and not slippery. The highly elastic natural rubber innertubes common in some warm countries are great for spearguns and slingshots but will break if left in the sun. Those innertubes are often red in color. The black chair seat seen in this picture has been used and abused for several years in a busy room. It’s just now starting to break down a bit, but is still comfortable.”Link.
