     Price is determined by the type of caning you need. If your piece has a series of small holes that go around the seat opening, this is called "Hand woven" or "Woven" cane .. Count the number of holes in your piece. Call for a "ballpark" estimate. Accurate pricing can only be determined when the item is in my shop.

     If your piece has a groove around the seat or back opening, with a "spline" holding the cane in place, this is called "Pressed cane" or "Cane webbing" . Measure diagonally from the front corner of the seat across to the back corner. Round up to the next inch. Call for an estimate..

    I no longer do seat weaving using rush material.

    Reed splint (flat reed) is a less expensive option. $70-80 per seat. I also use fiber splint. Very attractive, but more expensive. Around $145 per seat or back..

    Seats woven with wide binder cane, such as the New England Porch weave, basket weave and herringbone pattern generally run  $205-$260.00 depending on the size.  Backs are woven on two sides. They cost $275. Smaller binder cane (4mm or 5 mm) chairs required much more material and labor.

     Danish Cord is expensive and labor intensive. An average double-rail chair would cost around $225.00. Single rail chairs would be $205.00. If the material is attached with  staples, the cost is $275.

     I do not repair wicker items.

A Word on Staining

     Some caning experts recommend not staining cane. The outside (top) of the cane is non-porous so it does not stain evenly. Staining can seal the back side of the cane which does not allow it to "breathe". This causes the cane to dry out. It will not last as long as unstained cane. The natural color of the cane is beautiful (in my opinion), and over time will develop a "patina" which is attractive to the eye.

     I have done some staining in the past, I have decided to no longer do any staining.
