The use of cane in construction
In the construction industry, 'cane' typically refers to a hard, hollow stem of a plant such as bamboo or reed that can be used to make furniture, baskets, radiator covers and so on. It has also been used on a larger scale as a material for constructing or cladding walls, roofs and fences, and bamboo has been used for scaffolding and for structural applications. For more information see: Bamboo.
Cane can also refer to: 'A multicoloured glass rod, made by heating, perhaps twisting and extending together a number of individual rods of different colours.' Ref Archaeological Evidence for Glassworking, Guidelines for Recovering, Analysing and Interpreting Evidence, published by Historic England in 2018. See also: Reticella.
