After forty years in the insurance business, I decided to start a hobby. I had several chairs with broken down cane bottoms and wanted to learn how to re-cane them myself.

After fixing several chairs, I decided to make it a business. Six plus years later, and about 100 chairs, I am now sharing my knowledge with others. Caning is becoming a lost art.
