History

Since 1975

A Cane, Wood, and Wicker Fixer is dedicated to providing the best caning, rush, rattan wrapping, splint, danish cord, and rawhide furniture repair service!

I have been doing this work since 1975! Growing up working in my Families Wicker & Furniture store, in Southern California, we sold many different raw supplies for people to fix their own furniture.

When I was 22, I bought a set of Pressback Antique Oak Press Cane dining room chairs, needing to be re-caned. I figured now I would see if I knew what I was talking about to customers with regards to how to do these repairs with the materials we sold… Turned out I like the process of Re-Caning chairs & working with my hands a lot more than working in the Retail Business World! So when people asked where they could have their chairs recaned or fixed, I said “I can do it for you…!”

For years I continued running both the store during the day, and doing my repair service at night. I eventually left the retail store in 1988, and opened my first repair shop in Orange Calif. I then did repairs to Cane Wicker & Rattan Furniture full time & the Business grew quite rapidly. After 2 years of it though, I decided Southern California, was too sunny and crowded for me. I thought about Las Vegas, Nevada TOO HOT! Idaho TOO much winter. Wyoming & Montana just seemed a little too far removed for me! Finally I decided & moved to Tigard (Portland) Oregon in 1990. Even today, I am still Caning Chairs & Fixing Wicker!

Provide a way to showcase the different types of work I do, learn about what I do, see what the various forms of work I do are called, see pictures of what my work looks like, and get an idea about how your piece of furniture might be able to look again!

Thank you, Randy
