DIY weaving pattern for rattan stool
Initially determined with a stool frame. You can do it yourself: they make a square for a seat measuring 30x30 cm from the bars; supply it with corners with legs of the required length; connect the legs in pairs with pieces of bars approximately in the middle in height. Opposite pairs of legs are additionally combined in the upper part with a bar - it is attached simultaneously to the bars of the seat.
To strengthen the seat across the square billet place evenly 3 ... 4 strips of dense tape. Direction - between the sides under which there are no upper jumper legs. The ends of the strips lead under the bottom of the bars of the seat, fixed with brackets. Pressed by the bars, placing them between the legs and screwing to the bar of the seat.
There are many patterns of weaving a stool. You can use, for example, a dense option.
Short and long rattan blanks are cut. They should overlap across the seat and: the first should come with their ends on the sides of the bars of its frame; the second - to go on the inner surfaces of the intermediate bars with which the legs are fastened.
The laying of the rattan blanks starts from one edge of the seat, parallel to it. First place two short, then one long, again two short and one long. Continue laying to the opposite edge of the seat frame. The installation of the pieces is done with a slight tension. The ends of the tapes are attached to the bars with brackets (for short tapes to the side surface of the seat frame; for long tapes - to the inner surface of the middle rungs, at the extreme - to the base of the legs).
After they make the laying of the rattan tapes in the perpendicular direction to the previously laid. Start from the edge of the seat and move to the opposite. Also alternate two short ribbons and one long. This is done by weaving: the first strip is passed under two initial transverse ones, then carried out over the next two, then under two successive ones. This is done to the end, alternating the upper and lower arrangement relative to the two ribbons of the base.
The second strip is located above one transverse, then under two and further, as with the first strip. The third is placed on top of two transverse ones, then weaving is repeated, as with the first and second ribbons. The fourth is placed under one transverse, then alternate, as in previous cases, through two from bottom to top. With the fifth, they do everything as with the first, in the sixth - as with the second, with the seventh - as with the third, with the eighth - as with the fourth. Repeat everything again every four strips to the end of the seat surface of the stool.
Having finished with the seat, weaving of the sidewall begins. Do it with one long tape. If it ends to its end solder the second. Weaving is done, bypassing from different sides the ends of the long pieces previously laid on the seat. In this case, the next row should bypass the vertical sections of the tapes on the other side than the previous one. So continue to the bottom of the transverse bars connecting the legs.
Add one vertical strip of rattan to the legs, fixing their ends with brackets on the base of the leg and on its surface under the previously arranged weave. All four legs of the stool are braided according to the previous scheme.
