1. Measure and Cut the Cane Webbing:

  • Cut the cane webbing sheet slightly larger than the dimensions of the panels. You can use a utility knife to cut the cane webbing.

2. Prepare the Cabinet Doors:
  • Ensure that the cabinet doors are clean, dry, and free of any dust or debris.
  • If the cabinet doors have any rough edges, sand them down to create a smooth surface.

3. Apply Wood Glue:
  • Apply a thin layer of wood glue around the edges of the cabinet door panels where the cane webbing will be attached.

4. Attach Cane Webbing:
  • Carefully place the cut cane webbing onto the glued surface, ensuring it aligns properly with the edges of the cabinet door panels.
  • Press down on the cane webbing to ensure good adhesion with the wood.

5. Secure with Molding or Spline:
  • To secure the cane webbing in place, you can use wooden molding or spline.
  • Apply wood glue to one side of the molding or spline and press it onto the edges of the cabinet door, covering the edges of the cane webbing.
  • Use small brads or staples to secure the molding/spline in place. Ensure that the brads or staples are not visible from the front of the cabinet door.

6. Trim Excess Cane Webbing:
  • Use a utility knife to carefully trim any excess cane webbing along the edges of the molding or spline.

7. Finishing Touches:
  • Wipe away any excess glue with a damp cloth.
  • Allow the wood glue to dry completely according to the manufacturer's instructions.

8. Optional: Stain or Finish:
  • If desired, you can stain or finish the cabinet doors to match your overall design.

Remember to follow the specific instructions for the cane webbing and wood glue you are using, as different products may have slightly different application techniques. Additionally, always prioritize safety by using appropriate tools and working in a well-ventilated area.
