PRESSED AND BLIND CANE
Pressed cane or machine cane is not woven like hand cane, but purchased in pre-woven sheets, cut to size and glued into a groove by pressing in a rattan spline to hold it.
Sometimes a hand cane piece can be converted to a pressed cane by chiseling a groove into the wood and plugging the holes.  Not all pieces can be converted (depending upon the quality and quantity of wood available to chisel) , but if hand cane is too expensive, it may be an alternative.
Blind cane is usually reserved for furniture backs, since gluing strands is not as strong as weaving them through.  This medallion chair required nails on the inside and outside edges.  Gluing is done between layers of cane and to secure the lacing.
 An example of an unusual blind cane seat. 
 The back and sides are double layers of blind cane.
