Cut Cane Webbing to Size
First, cut the cane webbing to size.
I had to use some heavy objects around to help weigh the edges down while I cut. I also cut the webbing just a little bit larger than the opening so I wouldn’t accidentally cut it too small.
Soak Cane Webbing in Warm Water
Then soak the cane webbing in some warm water for at least 30 minutes. Soaking the cane webbing makes it more pliable and easier to work with.
It also stretches it out more, so when it dries again it dries tighter than when it’s wet. After I soaked it for half an hour, I dried it off a little with a towel.
Staple Cane Webbing to Wood
Then I used a stapler that uses T50 staples to staple the cane to the wood. I started in the middle on one side, and then I stapled it again in the middle on the other side.
And then I stapled it on the other 2 sides. Then I worked my way around the rest of the edges, pulling the cane webbing tight and trying to line it up before stapling it in place.
Cut Cane Webbing Excess with Utility Knife
Then I cut the excess with a utility knife.
The sharper, the better for this job. But I was able to make a dull utility knife work. haha
Cover Edges with Wood
Then I put the glass that was originally in the opening back. And I screwed in the wood that held the glass in place, back in their spots.
If you don’t have wood that covers it already, you could glue or nail some thin wood trim over the edges.

Let Cane Webbing Dry
Then let the cane dry. Once it’s dry it should be tight and not flimsy. Watch how I installed cane webbing to a door below.
