This is the finished Douchesse set put together. We have done the 3 bottoms and one panel in the back, Blind Cane, plus a few small repairs. There are some other pictures below.With some stain it will be on it's way back to South Carolina.


Here's the back of the chair during weaving in the Blind Cane.


This is a Douchesse set that needs the seats and footstool done in regular hand cane and one section if the larger piece done with Blind cane.

4 Cane Chairs

These 4 chairs have been used by the owner to play cards with the ladies for many years. Now recaned, the should last the ladies many more.

1936 Ford School Bus Frames

 These are 19 frames from a 1936 Ford School Bus that the customer bought to convert into a food truck! The frame were nickel plated but that had long since gone south leaving the brass base metal and a lot of GREEN! Once polished, they were clear coated for protection.

Childs Wicker Rocker

Here is a childs rocker that the back is broken and what's left is very brittle. The customers have a picture of their 98 year old mother sitting in this rocker as a little girl and plan on having pictures of the grandchildren taken in this rocker to start a family tradition.

Here is the rocker with a new back ready to paint. When they picked it up, they were heading back to the NC coast but were going to stop and show Mom the finished product.

Brass Clock

Here is a brass clock that the customer never remembered not being green on the mantel.After taking it apart, we cleaned all the parts, polished them on the wheel and lacqured them to stay bright. The customer has taken it to the clock shop and now it sits on the mantel and runs!

Mahogany Chair

Here is a Mahogany chair that has seen better times. As with a lot of furniture, it has been transformed from a cane chair to an upholstered one to bring it more "up to date". Now it's time to bring it back.
