Jim did a wonderful job repairing my rush seats; they were ready ahead of time and he was a pleasure to work with. His prices were fair and reasonable.Oct 16, 2018
We had two chairs recaned by Jim and they came out beautiful. The quality of his work is excellent and he was a pleasure to do business with. He is an excellent craftsman and we will definitely be using him again! I highly recommend Jim.Oct 24, 2017Verified
We were thrilled to find a craftsman to repair the cane seats of our vintage dining room set. Jim's work is very professional and he finished the job in less time than we anticipated. The stain matched very well and I'm sure that our family will have many more years of service from these chairs. Thanks Jim.Mar 23, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $4.00 per hole do replace hand woven caning. Count the number of holes around the perimeter of the caned area. I charge $6.00 per inch to replace prewoven or pressed caning. Measure the largest dimension of the caned area. I charge $7.00 per inch to replace rush. Measure the largest dimesnion of the rushed area. Materials are additional, usually $20-$25 for the average chair.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I show them photos and in some cases actual samples of my work. I refer them to my customer reviews so they can see what other clients think of the quality of my work. Finally, I provide them with an accurate estimate as to the cost and time necessary to complete the work.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been doing caning and rushwork for about 35 years. I am self taught.
