Richard Saunders is an antique wicker furniture repair expert with over 40 years experience and is the author of five books on antique wicker furniture, including Collecting and Restoring Wicker Furniture — the first book published with a how-to chapter on wicker repair.
Several years ago, he relocated from CA to Savannah, GA, bringing with him over 40 years of experience in restoring, writing about and appraising antique wicker furniture.
Now after a sabbatical from the day-to-day activities of wicker furniture and cane repair and restoration, Richard has decided to once again offer his quality wicker restoration services. So, if you have a wicker piece that needs some repair or restoration work, contact Richard today for an appointment.
Richard will also continue to serve the antique wicker field certified wicker furniture appraiser. So don’t throw out a valuable and irreplaceable piece of our American wicker history. Just because you don’t know what kind of wicker you have, when it was made, who the manufacturer was or what the value is now, doesn’t mean it’s not still valuable. STOP! Before you toss your wicker–get it appraised by the certified wicker appraiser expert first!
Richard provides certified, fee-based wicker furniture appraisals at $25 per piece. His appraisals can be used to establish a value of your wicker pieces for a variety of purposes such as heirloom/ inheritance, estate, resale, insurance, moving damage claims, and even court cases if necessary. Richard’s appraisals also include historical information, notes on style and design, dating the piece and proven or likely manufacturer.
Certified appraisals are given only after a physical inspection or through a series of good quality photos sent via email or postal mail. Richard Saunders is one of only a few whose appraisal certification specialty is antique wicker furniture. Contact Richard today for an appointment so you will be knowledgeable about your wicker furniture, too.
Mr. Saunders is also offering brand new copies of WICKER FURNITURE: A GUIDE TO RESTORING AND COLLECTING (Crown Publishers; 1990). This is a 245-page, large-format paperback book which includes an 8-page color photo section, hundreds of black and white photos and lots of fascinating information on antique wicker furniture. This is a perfect addition to anyone’s personal reference library.
This book went out of print several years ago but he has a limited supply of NEW copies which he purchased from the publisher’s warehouse. He would be happy to personally sign your copy. Price is $20, including 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!

Sherman Chair Caning–I have been in business since 1995 and specialize a wide array of caning services: Hand and Pressed Caning, Fibre and Natural Rush, Danish Cord, Splint Weave, Shaker Tape, Binding Cane, Specialty Caning and wicker repair.
In addition to working with my own customers, I have been called upon to work with some of the top furniture restoration businesses in the region, fulfilling any or all of their chair caning needs.

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 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!
