Step 16: Wrapping the base

I went with the cotton tape to wrap the base rather than rattan strips purely from past experience. I had found rattan strips at Spotlight (local arts and craft store) but opted for the former.
The glue I used was from a recipe I found online which involved boiling flour and water together to get a thick paste. Worked well but it was time consuming making the glue and took a while for the glue to dry. However, it turned out pretty good with the cotton tape holding its shape and keeping things together.
