TR Tolzmann, hand chair caner since 1972. I also refinished furniture in what I think is the traditional way.
Hand chair caning is work that makes me feel good. Why? It re-enlivens tradition—hand work—a craft. It makes something usable again—restores it, as it were.
It can use skill and dedication in the caning—the doing. The skill is a natural trait—good with my hands, it seems to be an inherent trait.
It seems the skill is essentially wanting to do it well.
I also offer lessons in whistling, singing, playing the French horn. As well as lessons and advice on refinishing, repairing, caning, upholstering, and furniture building.
