Need a Danish Cord chair or stool that needs a little love? Here is a stool that I recently finished for a customer. This is how the stool came look when it arrived.
I took all the old cord off and was left with just the plain green frame. I nailed the end of the cord to the frame and started weaving. I held the cord firm with clamps as I was weaving. Here is the new cord halfway through the project.
The stool was woven with only two pieces of cord. I could have used only one, but it was way too long for me to work with. There is one knot in the center of the bottom, but I was able to easily hide the knot on the inside.
Ta Da. Here is the happy newly woven Danish Cord stool.
