Barbara’s Caning and Weaving, also known in the region as Broward Furniture Refinishing & Caning is located in Fort Lauderdale and has served Broward County and the surrounding area for over 25 years, reweaving chair seats.
Owner Barbara Marx, started weaving many years ago when she needed her own four chairs re-caned. She was living in New York City at the time, in the 1980s, and decided to learn the chair caning craft on her own.
Barbara liked caning so much that she later went into the seat weaving business, providing services of hole caning, pressed cane webbing, paper rush and repairs to wicker furniture, too.
Always up for a challenge, not only do we work on chair seats, but also love seats, benches, and even cabinet doors on yachts!
Our services also include repair and re-gluing of chairs. We do work for several local antique dealers in Florida and New York, too.

WICKER, CANE & RUSH WORK “Sagging Seats – Our Specialty”
Heirloom pieces are always resurrected with museum-quality work. All types of cane work, ash and reed splint woven seats, and rattan furniture lovingly restored. Owner Tricia Vandewater learned chair seat weaving from her mom over 45 years ago as a child.
“We’ve never met a piece of furniture we couldn’t bring back to pristine condition.”
Welcome to Brad’s Backcountry Woodshop in Big Bear Lake California. Located high in the mountains of southern California I create new wooden furniture pieces as well as refinish and restore the old. I will fix dings, dents, raised or missing veneer, broken and missing pieces, spindle turnings, reweaving your cane, rush and splint chair seats, polishing old finishes.
Fine instruments to chairs, simple to complex, French polishing, color matching, toner, glazing, grain filling, these are just a few processes I take each piece through. Each piece already has a story to tell and when I am done it will have many more to tell.
These are just some of the things I have had the honor of working on and bringing back its original beauty to last another 100 years. When working on old pieces of furniture I always wonder about the hands that have touched the piece prior to mine, the conversations that took place around a hundred-year-old dining room table or the music created by a 110-year-old reed organ that no one outside that room has heard today.
I started working with wood at a young age, as my Grandparents on both sides and father had all the necessary tools and knowledge about woodworking for me to become comfortable in working with wood. My Mom also as early as I can remember was bringing home antiques and of course, most of them needed repair.
Without knowing it at the time I was not only learning how to repair wood furniture but also was paying attention to the construction of older furniture, joinery and finish used. For long-lasting furniture, I realized proper joints, finish and proportion is essential to a great piece.
Please browse my site and see what you like! If you do not see what you are looking for in the site, just go to the contact page and tell me what you need! I am willing to work with you to create the wooden piece you have in mind or to fix whatever’s broken.
Just e-mail pictures to me so I can give you a ballpark estimate. I will pick up and deliver pieces close to Big Bear Lake, CA. If you happen to live outside California we can schedule or discuss pick up or delivery options.
Thanks for stopping by and let’s connect on social, too!

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.
