Stephen Ambrose -“The Chair Seat Weaver” is a 4th generation professional chair seat weaver. After a recent move in early 2021 from York, Pennsylvania, where he lived and worked for many years, Stephen is now providing chair seat weaving services in Hanover, PA.
Stephen uses natural materials in the hand-weaving techniques of hole-to-hole cane or lace caning, press-in cane fabric or spine caning, and also does handwoven splint seats.
Stephen takes on minor furniture repair too, so if your pieces need some TLC in that area be sure to inquire about those services.
“Please call or email and I’ll get back to you to schedule your appointment and give directions to my shop. Looking forward to meeting you!” – Stephen Ambrose, The Chair Seat Weaver.
To put a face with the name, check out this Youtube video! Stephen’s chair caning talents were featured on the local TV station where he used to work as a broadcasting engineer before retiring!
A few years ago, ABC27, a local broadcast station in Pennsylvania, did a spot on Steve on their newscast, too.

Schuler Reed Furniture, owned by Morgan Schuler is dedicated to quality repairs on cane furniture. Serving both Indiana and Ohio since we are located just ten miles from Brookville, IN, between Cincinnati, OH and Indianapolis, IN.
My idea to start caning came from my grandparents who had a shop in Cincinnati called Lewis Reed Furniture, and I want to continue that in my own way the best I can.
Self-taught with the help of many people from around the world, I intend to grow my business as large as I can in the coming years.
I specialize in:
- hand cane
- pressed cane
- fiber rush
- flat reed
- binder cane
- light wickerwork
I also do small repairs and if I have not done a particular type of repair before, I will typically try to figure it out so I can perfect it.
Color-matching wood repairs on chairs is also a service I can provide, and I am able to get those pretty close but have not taken on any large refinishing jobs. At this time, I am not looking to tackle that challenge.
Before reweaving the seat, I always round the edges of the opening and the cane holes to prevent premature failure in the future. I then tighten any loose joints that I am able to, and then after the seat repair I oil the wood to bring it back to life. This is all included in one estimate to make things simple.
The easiest method of getting an estimate is to send pictures through text message to the phone number listed. That estimate is typically very accurate, but in-person estimates may differ a little depending on damage unseen in photos.
If needed, I also offer a fee-based pick-up and delivery service, within a reasonable distance from my shop.
Thank you, and I look forward to bringing a new life to your cane furniture.
