  1. Refinished and Re-caned Chairs

    I was recently given three chairs which had been readied for trash collection after many years of abuse and neglect, not to mention a number of rainstorms. The person whom gave them to me was simply curious as to what I might be able to do. As you can see the caning on two of them was...
