This page is intended for estimating weaving costs, only, not setting them. Your furniture may require some specific repair work or re-gluing and would affect the overall price of the repair. I won't place a new seat on a chair designed for an adult if it is unable to support the associated weight. Many chairs are manufactured to be robust, while others are lightweight in design and designed for children or for special use. When you bring in a chair I will be able to give you a more accurate estimate of what your cost will be.
To estimate the price of installing press cane measure from front to back and side to side at the widest points in the groove the cane will be pressed into. Add those dimensions together and multiply by $2.50
As an example: a seat that is 14" wide and 17" deep would add up to 31 inches x 2.50 equaling $77.50

Splint Cane Seat
To estimate the price of installing Splint Cane measure from front to back and side to side at the widest points. Usually the front is the widest. Add those dimensions together and multiply that number by $3.50.
This is a good way to show work in progress for a Splint Cane seat.
What you are looking at to the left is a chair mounted to a workstation. The back is on the bottom and doesn't need replacing. The seat is facing you. My sister Judi was working on this chair as this section is being added.
Often chairs with this type of weave on them are used for outside furniture and the appearance itself will age as you can see in the photo.
The photo shown directly below is an old but not very clear, but is being added to show some of the variations between it and the one to the left.
