SEATWEAVING PRICE GUIDE
Naturally, the best way to get an accurate price quote is directly from me after I've seen your project; however, the next best way is when you can email me pictures of what you need re-done. Use my contact page or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with your pictures, or use the guide below to estimate your own project before contacting me. Click on any of the highlighted links for a more detailed explanation of how to figure the costs of all the different types of weaving.
The following is a guide to the way seating projects are priced out. This is just a guide to give you an idea what it will cost you to have a chair re-seated by me, the final price will be determined when I actually physically inspect the project. Please note, due to the demands on my time and the occasional troubles I have had getting people to come pick up and pay after their chairs are ready, I am now requiring full payment up front at the time of drop-off.
All work is done by hand using simple tools and you need to understand that I do my best not to cause any damages during the weaving process, but it can and sometimes does happen; usually minor scratches or dings in the finish. I make no guarantees, implied or written, that your item will not suffer any damages while in my possession.
Unfortunately pick-up and delivery service is not an option, nor is storage. Most of my caning work is done at my home in a tiny workshop area I carved out in the basement. I am not able to store your furniture longer than it takes to complete the work. Unless we have agreed to other arrangements in advance, you must come pick up within a week of being notified it is finished or I may assess a storage fee.
CHAIR CANING PRICES
Hand woven strand cane...$2.00 per hole, most chairs. Oddly shaped or chairs requiring the very small sizes of cane will be priced upon seeing the piece in person.
Specialty cane patterns....$4.00 per hole
Pressed cane, click the link to see what the difference between strand cane and pressed cane is.
I will only accept pressed caning jobs that do not require ME to remove the old webbing and spline.

DANISH CORD (removal of old material not required)
