To tell if your chair is hand caned or sheet cane --
look where the edge of the cane meets the wood. If
you can see holes drilled into the wood, then it is
hand caned. If you see a solid piece of caning
(spline) around the edge, then it is sheet cane.

Rush seat
Specialty woven seat
This particular rush seat shows a few different finish
options. The left half is the natural material with no
finish applied. The top right is with a clearcoat. The
bottom right is done with glazing to give it a little
more of an aged look.

Two of the owners do the hand caning and weaving themselves. However, they do it at home at night and on
the weekends. Because of the amount of time it takes to do a single seat, we only schedule them to each
complete 1 chair a month. You can check the
prices page for current completion dates.
