This is the traditional hole-to-hole method of caning the seats and backs of chairs. Pricing is determined by counting each hole in the frame of the chair. As a general rule, hand-caned chairs cannot be converted to use pressed cane or visa versa.
An easier to install (and therefore cheaper!) alternative to hand caning. This method of caning uses machine-woven sheets of caning material that are pressed in place using spline. As a general rule, hand-caned chairs cannot be converted to use pressed cane or visa versa.
Traditionally woven using natural rush, this method of weaving is distinguished by its use of a round, paper material and the distinctive triangular shapes it creates.
Most often found on pricier modern Scandinavian furniture, this method of weaving uses a 3 ply rope-like material and L-shaped nails.
The vast majority of chairs will fall under the categories above. However, I have experience with other, less common techniques, materials, and patterns as well. I've completed various binding cane weaves (Herringbone, Checkerboard) as well as the "daisy-and-button," "Daisy," and "Spider Weave" caning patterns. Let's discuss what you have!
No two chairs I have ever worked on have been the same. On occasion, I have encountered situations where more time and repairs than normal are required (such as hidden damage or shortcuts taken by previous weavers). For this reason, I have found it best to quote projects after I have seen them. To help you get a general sense, though, most standard hand and track-caned chairs cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $100.
