Here's the shot we posted almost a year ago when the customer dropped off the 15 chairs and rockers. The are "DuB" chairs made in the NC Mountains. Below, you will see the end result now at home in NC in the mountains where they belong.


Here is an overall pic of the rockers and chairs. Most are marked "DuB" and came from the NC Mountains handcrafted many years ago. We used an oil mix finish with Flat Oval Reed and used the "Carolina Close Weave" pattern. These folks live in SC and have a "Family Home" up in the NC mountains, so what better pattern to use!

"DuB" Rockers

Here are the rockers and chairs from a post from almost a year ago! We have restored the rockers and chairs.

15 Pieces from Maryland.

Here is some of the 15 pieces of Ficks Wicker brought to us from Maryland. Damage was mainly in the leg areas but a couple of the arm chairs had broken spokes and weavers. Once repaired, we finished with a "distressed" look like it was.

Fibre Wicker Sofa

This sofa had been stored for many years and dried out. Many of the wire core spokes were broken as well as the usual leg damage.


Here's the finished sofa with new spokes and braid. We added a light stain to the finish to bring back the color thar was faded.
We received this email from the customer;
"Hi Rob,

I am very pleased with the couch you restored for me. It looks great and I am very happy with it. You did a wonderful job andI am so excited to have it back. Thank you.
