WOVEN FURNITURE REPAIR
JC Caning provides extensive weaving restoration.
Please be patient as caning is labor intensive. Some pieces can be done quickly while others will take time. Work is rotated efficiently to provide the best service possible.
Please contact JC Caning to schedule an appointment.
Payment is due in full upon completion. Cash, checks, and credit cards (processing fee of 2.6% + $.10 applied) accepted. Customer delivery and pick up is preferred. Pick up and delivery service is available.
A photo may be emailed with dimensions for an initial estimate. Detailed estimates will be given after inspection since all chairs are different and may provide unique challenges. Material price calculated at the time of estimate is subject to change.
This price list is for standard seat weaving jobs.

All prices include removal of old material and refresh of finish. Loose joints and any minor repairs will be noted. Cane can be stained, if desired, but exact color matches cannot be guaranteed.

types of weaves
Traditional 7-step pattern woven using holes around the seat frame. Check for loops and knots visible on the underside of the seat. Hand cane is priced at $4 per hole.
Sheet cane is "pressed" into a groove that runs around the seat frame and is held in place with a reed spline and glue. Pressed cane is $135 for
a standard size seat.
Material is woven continuously around the seat rails and creates
a triangle pattern. Rush is $10-12
per inch measured on the longest dimension.
