What is a rattan cane?
Cane is the outer “bark” part of the rattan tree. It’s created by peeling the top layer off of the rattan vine and wrapping it around solid furniture (think hardwood, steel, or aluminium frames). Cane is a great, on-trend choice for a bedframe, credenza, and even light fixtures.
Where should the heavier person sit in a canoe?
The back of the canoe is where the steering takes place. For this reason, the more experienced paddler, or more coordinated person, should be in the stern of the canoe. When there are only two canoeists, it is also better to have the heavier person in the back of the canoe.
How do you measure the depth of a canoe?
Determining the depth of the canoe: Freeboard, the distance between the gunwale and the water, varies with the load the canoe is carrying.
