Use more reeds, outward of the rods that form the base. When you reach the end of a cane, enter it safely inside the wicker storage baskets. Repeat this process until you have three or four inches of excess base rods sticking out the top. Cut the canes to the smooth edge, leaving at 2.5 or 1.2 cm sticking out the top. Use a sharp scissors, such as the kitchen since the rods can be quite difficult to cut.
