Angie Reid’s Furniture Refinishing and Caning preserves memories and brings old furniture new life! The business located on the border of Maine and New Brunswick, Canada, serves the Maritime provinces in both Canada and Maine.

I started my business after stripping and refinishing the stairs in my Victorian Era home. Shortly after launching my refinishing business, a neighbor brought me a cane chair in need of a new seat.

While learning hole to hole caning I discovered a talent and passion for seat weaving. I am proficient in hole-to-hole caning, sheet cane, French hand cane, Danish cord, rush and reed weaving.

In terms of refinishing, I restore heirlooms and breath new life into pieces with paint and/or stain. I specialize in custom colour staining and also wicker repair.

Always up for a challenge, not only do we work on chair seats, but also love seats, benches, and even cabinet doors on yachts!

saggybottomgirlsIN.jpg
814 Morphis Lane, Greenwood, IN, 46142

Saggy Bottom Girls Caning offers chair seat weaving services in and around the Indianapolis, Indiana area.  We specialize in cane, fiber rush, seagrass, flat reed, binding cane, and others.  We are a home-based family business and I personally weave each chair.  We also work with local restoration companies should your chair need structural repairs.

I started this business several years ago as a way to spend time with my dad.  People began asking me to fix their chairs with saggy bottoms and that is how the business began.

This is also how I came up with the name. It’s a play on the movie “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” starring George Clooney, and my Saggy Bottom Girls Caning seemed like an interesting twist to their Soggy Bottom Boys band.

Richard Peck-CaningWI.JPG
2736 Ole Davidson Road Racine, WI 53405

RS Peck offers caning, both handwoven and prewoven, in most patterns including the very difficult double-blind cane technique. I also do woodcarving of reproductions (such as missing sections on furniture and mirror frames) and original pieces.

I owned and operated a furniture restoration business in Racine, Wisconsin for 24 years, prior to closing in 2014. So if your piece needs gluing or repair, as often is required with chairs and rockers, I do provide that service.
