This is how they looked after removing the rattan and mud.
A coat of matte black and the first few rows.
A few more rows and all the way up.
Now starting to do the weave.
All done after 1000 feet or more of cord.
Heating the trex deck rockers on the grill for easy bending and clamping.
Once they cool to shape I will tack them into the nail board wrapped between the rails and cord.
I will post finished chairs soon.
