Homeworks Fine, But

 The dog left the homework alone but not so much the chair. Plastic wicker, discontinued model. Customer said to replace this one chair would cost more then the whole set. We managed to find a close material to reweave the missing parts. As far as we know, the dog is fine but in the doghouse for sure.

Plastic Sofa

Another dog gone bad. Chewed on both sides of this arm. We repaired then had to color to match. Currently, there is not a lot of choices of materials to repair this type of furniture. You get what you can as close to the old material as possable.

Old Porch Swing

This swing has seen some damage from rain over the years. We braced the bottom,added new seat parts, braid and the front roll and new warpers up the back. New paint and ready for sweet tea on the porch!

Childs Wicker Chair

This chair was a family piece and was restored for the new grandchild to use. We made the new pieces and later put in a new pressed cane seat.

Fiat Jolly Seats

This set of seats was modified to convert the car to a Fiat Jolly. They are slightly different then the factory seats but I don't think anyone will notice on one of these VERY cool cars!

Fiat Rear

Here is the rear set of seats for the Fiat Jolly.

Carriage Seat Riser

This riser is for a two wheel cart. It attaches to the bed of the cart and the seat attaches to the top. It's sitting as you would see from the back. The "front" side is open for storage

Mid Century Frame

This is a frame for a mid century "chrome" chair. The customer bought it on line somewhere and took the frame to be re-chromed the to us for the new weaving. See the pic below.

Mid Century Chrome Chair

Here is the chair done and ready for finish. Used round reed for this project.

McGuire Chair

This is a McGuire chair, one of a set. The seat had broken so we installed a new pressed cane seat and stained to match.

Round Table Braid

Here is a close-up of the new braid on the table. We used binder cane and painted to match.

Round Wicker Table

Here we have a nice wicker table that jus needed some TLC. The edge detail as the most damage so we elented to replace it all.

Mid Century Danish Cane Back

Here is a mid century "Danish" modern chair, one of two. We replaced the back using wide binder cane like it was.
