Ensure the cane remains damp and pliable. Working on the stakes on the inside of the tray, pick up three adjacent stakes on a non-handle side and then take the left-hand of these stakes over the two to its right and then down towards the tray's base. See the first photo. Pick up the next stake to the right bebeyond the stake that was bent down. Keep the bent down stake in place. Take the left hand stake of the three you are holding over the two to its right and down. See the next photo. Pick up the next stake and repeat the "over two and down" until two stakes remain. Take the left-hand of these stakes over its right-hand neighbour and over and down into the gap indicated. (You may have to use an awl, bodkin or screwdriver to open up the gap between its second and third neighbour to the right.) See the photos. Take the last stake over and down through the gap between its 2nd and 3rd neighbours to the right, as indicated in the last two photos. Tighten these last stakes.
