Chair caning

Chair caning
Examples of my work

Monday, October 22, 2012

My most recent caning job...done for my best childhood friend, Kay, in Spartanburg, S.C.  This is my favorite caning work...I also do herringbone, as seen in Brumby rockers, and find that much easier and  quicker, but French caning is the one of which I feel most proud.  My uncle, after retiring, worked to restore furniture  but would have to take the chairs to be caned 70 miles from home to have that done.  After I retired I decided to learn to French cane and have done many.  I have caned chairs for all our kids, grandkids, and my husband's sisters and brothers, too, and great nieces and nephews.  A legacy of sorts!!
