How To Bend Rattan


Pretty simple actually. Carefully heat the cane with a blow torch. And then bend it with a metal jig while it is still hot. Repeat until cane attains desired curvature. The cane will maintain this shape after it is cool. [NOTE: Video clip from rattan factory at Veal Rinh commune in Laos (see Rattan Splitter).
