Chair's finish was bad and all joints where lose, Chair needed to be stripped ,refinished with a shellac french polish and recaned. The Chair cane pattern on this chair is a combo of two patterns. Buttons & Daisy
Bench, this was a cool bench to work on. It had multiple coats of Blue then White paint that had to be stripped off, sanded ,stained and finished. I added a solid seat bottom and was able to keep the needle point fabric for seat. I added some dye to the carvings on the legs.
French caning This Chair had some finish problems but was able to reflow the existing finish. French Caning is away of caning that has no through holes for a cleaner look on the back of the chair with not knots.Every piece of of cane has to be cut to lenght glued and pinned with a dowel before you can proceed with the next strip. The Pattern here is called spider web
This chair Is a unique design it only had the press cane and spline done to it . I liked the patina so just added a lite polish to keep it together. I did not take pictures before I re caned the chair .It happens some times.
This is a very cool chair! it had been very damaged, painted at one time, broken joints and cane. I replaced the cane and fixed all broken joints. I then decided to get what ever paint was left on because I like the way it looked on this chair.
