B. Rattan handling and preparation: 

  1. 1. Soaking and softening of rattan

  2. - Prepare the soaking container: Choose an appropriately sized container and fully soak the cane in it. Use a container such as a pot, bucket, or sink to ensure the cane is fully soaked.

- Add water to soak: Put the rattan in a container and add enough warm water to ensure the rattan is fully soaked. Warm water will speed up the softening process of the rattan. The soaking time can be slightly adjusted according to the material, thickness and hardness of the rattan, generally several hours to one night.

- Press the rattan: After soaking, if the rattan appears to float, you can properly press the rattan to make it completely soaked in water, so that the softening effect is better.

- Check the softening degree: After soaking for a period of time, you can try to bend the rattan. If the rattan feels soft and not easy to break, it means that the softening effect is good.

2. Clean the dust and stains on the rattan surface

2. Gradually weave rattan to form the desired shape and structure

- Prepare the cane: Choose a soft cane and trim it to the desired length. Make sure the rattans are all roughly the same length.

- Weaving Basics: Starting at one end of the cane, thread the netting needle through the cane, about 10cm from the bottom of the cane. Depending on the weave style chosen, thread the webbing needle through the rattan to form the first weave.

- Continue Weaving: Depending on the chosen weaving style, continue through and cross the rattan to gradually form the desired shape structure. During the weaving process, the position and tightness of the rattan can be adjusted as needed, so that the whole structure looks uniform and beautiful.

- Secure Ends: Secure the ends of the rattan in the structure when weaved to desired size and shape. The ends of the rattan can be secured with screws, string, etc. to ensure the stability of the structure.

D. Fix lighting and wires

  1. 1. Install lighting inside the rattan:

- At the position where lighting needs to be installed, leave appropriate space and holes to ensure that the selected lighting is suitable for installation inside the rattan, so as not to affect the use of lighting and the structure of the rattan.

2. Thread and fix the wires at the bottom of the lampshade:

- According to the lighting design and installation requirements, choose the appropriate wires and plugs. Make a hole of a suitable size in the bottom of the lampshade, pass the wire through the hole, and wipe the edge of the hole smooth so as not to damage the wire. Using string, rattan, or other suitable material, secure the wires to the bottom of the lampshade. Specialized anchors or knotted braids can be used to ensure that the wires are held securely and will not loosen or sag for safety and aesthetics.

Summary: When installing lighting inside the rattan, it is necessary to choose the appropriate lighting and weaving method. Make sure the lighting fits the rattan and is secured inside the rattan. When threading and fixing the wires at the bottom of the lampshade, you need to choose the appropriate wires and plugs, and ensure that the wires are properly fixed at the bottom of the lampshade to ensure safety and aesthetics.

E. Test the brightness and effect of lighting: 

- Connect the power supply, check whether the lights are on normally, and check whether the brightness of the lighting meets the requirements.
