439 Lee Road 2183, Salem, AL, 36874 USA

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.

212 Turlock Dr, Big Bear City, CA 92314, USA

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!

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 is often required with chairs and rockers, I do provide that service.

East-Street-Arts-Caning-CT.jpg
597 East Street, New Haven, CT 06511, USA

East Street Arts is dedicated to fostering the creation of art through artisan training programs, workshops, and community interactions for persons of all abilities.

In our chair caning studio, Association of Artisans to Cane, we provide hands-on learning to artists of all abilities in the craft of seat weaving.

The artists use these skills to restore chairs for community members with oversight from highly trained staff. Each artist has the opportunity to learn various forms of seat weaving, including hand cane, pressed cane, paper rush, and flat reed/splint weaving, as well as other techniques.

The artists advance at their own pace; as one style of seat weaving is mastered, another style is taught. While most of the seat weaving is done to restore chairs for community members, donated chairs in good condition are also restored and sold in the shop.

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.
