    1. Hi there Clay,

      Sorry for the confusion and thanks for your comment Clay, I suspect others might also be wondering about “repair” vs. replacement.

      Whenever I refer to a cane seat needing “repair” it’s almost always to replace the entire seat. Rarely do I or anyone else in the profession make a patch in the caning.

      Some times it’s possible to replace a few strands in a chair where the caning is say, underneath the arm and doesn’t get much use. But for the most part, replacing a few strands is not practical or advisable.

      The “patch” is just that and will most likely fail soon anyway, and then there’s always the color match issue. And it’s usually more difficult to make a patch repair than it is to just replace the entire cane seat. This goes for sheet cane and hole cane alike.

      I always recommend to my customers that they let the entire seat fail, then bring it to me or another chair caning “repair” expert to have the caning replaced in the case of sheet cane and rewoven in the case of hole-to-hole strand caning.
