Cane drawer fronts1/16
We have an upcoming project where customer wants to use cane material as the inset for the drawer front. My concern is how do we achieve this look?
From the picture it looks like the panel with the cane applied is wrapped by a mitered frame.
What type adhesive should I use to hold the cane in place?
This is what I would do.
Thanks for the response. I am comfortable with how to make the drawer front; I am interested in how to glue the cane mesh in place so that it doesn't move, stretch, or sag over time.
Ah, sorry! In the past we have used contact adhesives with good luck.
Was the substrate finished? Do you mind sharing the brand of contact cement you used?
I have always used wood glue for cane in seats mostly. If the cane gets stretched tight and either stapled from the edge or back glue may not be needed. I would not use any glue under the face because it could calendar through and effect the way it takes finish.
How about a strip of high-strength double-stick tape around the edges, which would be covered by the overlapping molding that Tyler suggested?
