Are you a business owner who wants to train your employees?

Need help with your chair but can’t make it to Asheville?

Are you wanting to become a chair caner and have questions?

Architects, Decorators, CEOs, Furniture Designers, Students, Hobbyists:  A LOT of people call me for advice. I would love to spend time geeking out on chairs and helping you through the process of caning your particular seat. I love talking chairs and helping people.

Therefore, I will be happy to spend time with you on the phone for 10 minutes at no charge. To expedite the process:

1.  EMAIL before calling please.  Have SPECIFIC questions ready! Send photos and questions in the same email.

2. In the subject line, please enter “consultation.”

3.  In the body of the email, go ahead and enter your questions.  This way I will be able to give you good advice without spending your free 10 minutes figuring out what type of chair you have.

4. Tell me your availability to talk.  We can take care of some things online but sometimes phone calls are just easier.

Consultation Fee after 10 free minutes is $50/30 minutes of phone time.  

For more in depth advice on your project, just take pictures of your chair (front, side, back, and underneath views) and send photos to Students get free advice after their classes!

For more in depth help on starting a chair caning operation in your town, write down very specific questions and email them to me at I will take time answering them and set up a phone appointment. The consultation fee is $50/30 minute phone session. The session includes the 30-min phone call, a bit of research, and administrative fees.

It is my goal to spread the love of chairs all over the world.

I am compelled to prevent caning from becoming a lost art.

In an ideal world, I’d weave chairs and teach caning for free.

In the real world, I have to charge by the hour or fraction thereof.

Thanks for understanding.
