The easiest way to understand the process of making wickerfurniture on a stool. To make its frame, which has a height of 450 cm and a seat diameter of 370 mm, it is necessary to take 4 willow sticks with a diameter of about 50 mm.

If you want to make a stool with the thrones, thentake for their manufacture two rods, having a diameter of 25 mm and a length of 420 mm. The end of the leg should be performed at a distance of 60 mm from the edge. To do this, they need to be broken and trimmed. It is also necessary to fix the upper spacer. Her both bars need to be bent and give them a semi-oval shape, then fasten the legs of the stool at equal distance to the upper hoop, bend the hoop with the thin edges of the legs and nail them.
Next, you need to complete the skeleton assembly. To do this, you need to braid the upper hoop round the thin rods. At the edges, the upper and lower hoops should be braided with a delicate weave.
