Pre-Woven Cane, Cane Webbing, Pressed-in cane, Machine Cane, Sheet cane, and Spline Cane Furniture Repair

Caning is a method of weaving chair seats, backs, and other furniture, whether the piece is new or the weaving is being restored with material derived from the rattan plant.

Cane is a beautiful eco-friendly material, providing a light and airy feel for a room while still being modern and stylish.

Many seats, backs, and shelves with cane inserts can be removed from the frame and mailed to Caning Canada for cane repair. For more information, check out our shipping page.

So many pre-woven cane pieces can be restored or modernized to extend the use of the pieces we already own or find on the buy-sell sites.

Pre-Woven Cane

Pre-woven cane chairs

Pre-woven sheet cane is set into a routed groove on the top side of the chair, held in place with a reed spline, with no holes drilled in the framework.

Pre-woven cane is also referred to as cane webbing, pressed-in cane, machine cane, sheet cane, and spline cane.

Caning Canada stocks the three main sheet cane patterns used in most caning projects and can bring in specialty patterns if required for your project.

Save Money and the Environment by Restoring Your Existing Furniture

Tons and tons of old pieces of furniture end up in landfills every year. Just think about how much space your old dining set would take up in the local landfill, and you will see why restoring those pieces is so good for the environment.

When you restore your old furniture instead of buying new, you will feel good about yourself.

You will reduce your carbon footprint and help your children and grandchildren enjoy a greener and more sustainable future.

Older Furniture is Often Made Better than the newer throwaway pieces.

It is not your imagination – the furniture your parents and grandparents owned was made to last. The furniture you grew up with was handcrafted of solid wood, with quality material and a great finish.

Restoring your old furniture means you can enjoy that quality for many more years to come. Instead of replacing those pieces with less durable models, you can extend the life of your current pieces and enjoy years of quality and comfort.

You Can Save a Lot of Money

The cost of restoring your old furniture will be a fraction of the price of replacing those old pieces with new lower quality pieces.

Release your muse. Restore your family heirlooms or discover some treasures on the buy-sell sights. Your restored pieces will suit your unique tastes and decor.

There are many reasons to restore your old furniture instead of replacing it. Whether you want to save money, express your creativity, or protect our environment restoring your existing furniture is always a benefit.

The Thonet {pronounced tho-nay} bentwood rocking chair. 

Michael Thonet (1796-1871), is known as the German-Austrian inventor of the process of bentwood production, recognized by flowing forms and the lightweight chairs. 


In 1830, Michael Thonet experimented with bending steamed wood to create furniture. 

The wood is heated with water vapour and then bent into the desired shape, giving the pieces their lovely curves.

Gebrueder Thonet was founded in 1853. In 1856 Michael Thonet received a patent for the process of bentwood manufacturing when he and his five sons began to produce bentwood furniture.

These chairs can be either pre-woven or handwoven cane.
