Check our our Chair Caning and Chair Parts

Furniture Knowledge specializes in chairs parts.  Weather you are chair caning or need a chair hardware we can help. One very common type of chair caning that was invented and first used back in the 1870’s is machine woven cane webbing.  It also goes by a few other names; cane webbing, sheet cane, spline cane and cane panels.  This is where the cane strips are woven on a loom into panels or sheets.  The chair has a grove that is routed around the perimeter of the seat and these sheet panels are soaked in water to be more pliable, then they are tamped down into that routed grove and you use reed spline to put on top of the groove to hold down the sheet panels and to fill in the groove and finish the seat.  Cane webbing is a lot easier and less time consuming than its counterpart, hole-to-hole hand caning.  Really, the hardest part of this chair caning process, is getting rid of the old glue and old cane and cleaning out the groove.  Once it is cleaned out, the average chair usually takes about a hour to do a complete caning job.  Chair caning is a lot of fun. At first it might look intimidating but when you get into it, you will really enjoy it.  Weather it is cane weaving, shaker tape weaving, rush or wicker we can help. Not only do we provide all the items you need, we also provide the knowledge and know how.  We carry Chair Caning instructional videos and books to help you get started.   Besides chair caning, we also carry up to date chair parts. Swivel plates, rocker springs etc, what ever you need to fix your chair.   Chair caning or chair parts, when you fix it yourself, you will feel confident and proud of your own chair restoration.

Hoosier Cabinet Parts & Hoosier Style Accessories

 

Do you own or need to fix up your hoosier style cabinet?  We have all Hoosier Cabinet Parts you will need.  A Hoosier cabinet  AKA “Hoosier” is a type of cupboard that was popular in the first decades of the 20th century.  They were named after the Hoosier Manufacturing Co. of New Castle, Indiana.  The Cabinets were also made by several other companies as well.  Wilson, Boone, Napanee, McDougall, and Sellers just to name a few.  The typical Hoosier style cabinet consisted of 3 separate parts and had many Hoosier Style Accessories.   First being the base of the cabinet.  It mostly just had one large compartment with a slide-out shelf, and several drawers to one side.  A lot of times it would sit on small leg caps or small casters.  The second or top portion is smaller than the base cabinet.  It features several smaller compartments with doors, with one of the larger lower compartments having a roll-top drawer or tambour. The top and the bottom sections are put together with a pair of metal channels that act as the guide for a sliding countertop, which usually has a pair of shallow drawers affixed to its underside.  The Hoosier style cabinets were fairly shallow.  Most of them were only about 2 feet deep.  The width and length were average about 4 to 6 feet.   The main features about the Hoosier style cabinets were all of the accessories you could get for them.  They mainly came with different sized racks, and Hoosier Style Accessories to customize it how ever you wanted it.  They had spice rack hardware, a combination flour bin and flour sifter (which was really popular).  They had tin hoppers, sugar bins were also common.  Custom glass jars were made just for the cabinets. They were made to fit on the custom racks perfectly.  Sneath Glass Company was one of the major companies that made these jars.  There were coffee and tea canisters, a salt box, cracker jar, and about 4-8 spice jars.   On the inside of the doors, you could usually find information cards.  Menus, Measurement conversion charts, name plates and other household help pages. Hoosier cabinets were really popular up into the 1920s, but by that time houses began to be built with more modern kitchens with built-in cabinets and other fixtures. Which slowly phased out the need for a huge Hoosier cabinet.  However, the they still remain common on the antique market, and are still used as supplemental cabinets even today.   Check out our wide variety of cabinet parts and Hoosier style accessories.
