Major repairs, including construction and replacement of wooden parts, are handled by our woodworking partner. We also repair and replace veneer.

Reddick Family Chair Caning–Was started in 1974 by Imogene Reddick and was one of only a few commercial seatweavers left in Oklahoma City. Imogene provided PEG, HOLE, PORCH and SET-IN CANING and RUSH seat weaving services to customers in the greater Oklahoma City area and beyond.
Imogene also taught several members of the family the various techniques and designs, so they too can keep this craft alive and flourishing.
At the ripe old age of 95, Imogene decided to retire, but her daughter Dianna LeBoeuf and husband JD, assumed the business and moved it to Bethany, Oklahoma, continuing the legacy.
