Jeremy, where have you been hiding? The rewoven cane became common back in the 1920's, so a lot of chairs can be seen with a groove and spline that runs around the seat opening where the wet sheet is glued into place. Now many places like WSI distributors sells many sizes and even daisy chain. Great for faster replacement, the only problem is that you need to cut a groove to hold the spline and that pretty much destroys the value of an antique chair.
