seat weaving material- thanks Ben Glanville!

I find this webbing very quick to weave a top with - and cheap too: only £17 + VAT + delivery for 100 meters. (Thanks to Ben Glanville for tracking this down!)

There is some 17 meters in this seat top - i.e. £3.47 inc VAT excluding delivery.

I've just taken on this two seater chair to re weave a seat. The original was natural rush but I'm going to use paper rush. Hope it works out ok

Gavin, How do you finish the webbing? I see you've started with a tied piece and the loose end, but what method do you use to secure the ends?

I tie the 2 ends together. I relied on Mike Abbotts Going with the Grain description & method. Works fine!

I think I'll stick to single seats from now on, this took too long

Great job, it looks beautiful :)
Make it, mend it, wear it out,
