  1. For years I caned chairs I have retired and we are moving permanently to Florida. I have numerous chairs that people gave me that haven’t had seats put in them. Some are cane pressed and woven and some rush. I would love to have someone take them who would put seats in them and make them usable again. In the group is a grouping of 5 really sturdy oak pressed back chairs. I would be happy to donate them if you or someone else would keep them from being destroyed.
