TOOLS AND OTHER THINGS

Most seat-weaving jobs require only basic tools like hammers, scissors and so on, which you probably have already. But we do stock a few other items that will make things a lot easier for you.

FLAT SEAGRASS NEEDLE

The best needle for seagrass and various types of seating cord. Top quality British made.

CURVED SEAGRASS NEEDLES

The budget alternative. Works perfectly well for standard seagrass and other thinnish cords, but the eye may be too small for thicker cords, so please ask if in doubt.

BLUNTED SCREWDRIVER

One of my favourite tools. Essential for all types of rush and cord work, as well as for fitting ready-woven cane into the groove of a 'Cesca seat.

L-SHAPED NAILS FOR DANISH CORD

Traditional Danish corded seats use these hard-to-find nails for attaching the cord under the seat. The only size we can get is 25mm long with a L-piece of about 6mm as shown in the larger photo (click on the thumbnail to see it).

PEG PUSHER

A simple thing, but without it you'll have difficulty removing the old pegs from a caned chair, or inserting the new ones properly.
