Schuler-Furniture-Caning-IN.jpg
2041 IN-252, Cedar Grove, IN 47016, USA

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.

Savannah, GA 31405, USA

Richard Saunders is the author of five books on antique wicker furniture, a former wicker furniture restoration specialist, and one of the only certified wicker furniture appraisers in the country.

Richard and his wife Paula, relocated from California to Savannah, Georgia several years ago. Richard has over 45 years of hands-on experience in repairing and restoring wicker furniture and writing about and appraising antique wicker furniture.

One of Richard’s books, Collecting and Restoring Wicker Furniture — was the first book published with a how-to chapter on wicker repair. Several other books explain the history of the wicker furniture industry, give general pricing estimates, illustrate the different types of wicker furniture, and show examples of manufacturing methods and company warehouses.

Thinking of selling or throwing out your old wicker furniture? STOP! Don’t throw out a potentially valuable and irreplaceable piece of our American wicker history.

Before you toss your wicker–get an appraisal from Richard first! His appraisals include historical information, notes on style and design, dating the piece, and either proving the manufacturer or giving a likely manufacturer of the piece.

Richard provides certified, fee-based wicker furniture appraisals at $35 per piece. His appraisals can be used to establish the value of your wicker pieces for a variety of purposes:

  • establish family heirloom/inheritance value
  • estate resale value
  • resale value
  • insurance value
  • moving damage claims
  • and even court cases if necessary

Richard Saunders is one of only a few appraisers whose appraisal certification specialty is antique wicker furniture. Certified appraisals are given only after a physical inspection or through a series of good-quality photos sent to him via email or postal mail.

Contact Richard today for an appointment so you will be knowledgeable about your wicker furniture.

Mr. Saunders is also offering BRAND NEW copies of WICKER FURNITURE: A GUIDE TO RESTORING AND COLLECTING (Crown Publishers; 1990), which has been out of print for many years.

This is a 245-page, large-format paperback book that includes an 8-page color photo section, hundreds of black and white photos and lots of fascinating information on antique wicker furniture. It’s a perfect addition to anyone’s personal or seatweaving business reference library.

This book went out of print several years ago but Richard has a limited supply of NEW copies which he purchased from the publisher’s warehouse. He would be happy to personally sign your copy, just ask. The price of this special book is $30.00, which includes shipping and handling.

Contact Richard today to order your signed book, WICKER FURNITURE: A GUIDE TO RESTORING AND COLLECTING or to get your wicker piece evaluated and appraised for its proper value.

Directions to his shop will be given when your appointment is booked.

Ted Powell Bayberry Seatweaving NE.jpg
2713 Hunter Dr, Bellevue, NE 68123, USA

Bayberry Seatweaving is now located in Bellevue, Nebraska, just south of Omaha, after recently moving from Canton, Massachusetts. Owner, Ted Powell had his chair caning and seatweaving business in Canton for 15 years, providing chair caning and other seatweaving services in the surrounding area.

My mother was the Extension Service agent for Dukes County on Martha’s Vineyard – great place to grow up on!!  She taught me how to refinish, cane, and rush furniture back in the sixties when I was about ten years old.

In Canton, I concentrated on single-strand caning, pressed cane, paper rush, pre-twisted natural rush, and Danish cord.  I intend to keep doing these same skills and incorporating other seat weaving types as the need arises.

In addition, I provide minor restoration, re-gluing, and refinishing.  My turn-around times vary depending on what is needed and the complexity of the work.  However, because I am “retired,” I can respond quickly.

I provide free cost estimates and can usually do them using a few pictures and some seat measurements. Contact us today for your appointment.

Saggy Bottom Girls Caning has moved location! In August 2022 we moved our residence and business from Greenwood, Indiana to Salem, Alabama! We are now offering our chair seat weaving services in and around the Salem, AL area, which is 1 1/2 hours south of Atlanta between Columbus, GA and Auburn, AL. 

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.
