The cane pole is then heated using kerosene lamp and it is bent according to the desired/required shape with the help of shaping tool which is made of wood. Different parts of furniture are bent separately and joined together with readymade flat cane. The cane frame is sent for binding process. Cane is first soaked in water until it attains moisture and it is weaved around the frame with thin processed cane. Different motif patterns are created while weaving. After completion of weaving, the end parts are joined with nails. Finally, the furniture is polished using natural polish. Three coats of polish are given to attain fine glossy look of cane furniture. The furniture made of cane is rich in quality and design.
