Chair Caning and Weaving Rates

This list is a guide to give you an idea of how much your project will cost. All prices are estimates and subject to change based on variations in complexity and materials.

All other weaving styles are priced based on the diagonal measurement of the seat or back from one corner to the opposite corner of the caned or woven area. For round pressed cane seats, the price is based on the diameter of the caned area. (see examples below)
