A pro chair caner once told me to use very thin varnish on the top side only. I might thin the varnish as much as 75 percent with mineral spirits. Use full strength varnish on the spline. If you oil, I would use tung oil. Lately I have been leaving the cane unfinished, but I do like the color a little varnish or oil imparts.
