Here's a couple of Wegner round chairs I restored a few years ago. They had been sitting outdoors for years and the finish on the wood was in pretty bad condition and the cane seats was all broke up. I refurbished the wood and re-caned the seats, it take me about a day each on the caning. I will take to find the before pics and caning process pics, I have changed phones and computers since then and will need to locate the pics.

Very nice!

I hope you can find the before photos. Sounds like the chairs were in awful shape.

Yes they was, I have a bad habit of deleting pics off my phone due to small storage space but I'm sure I have them on another phone or computer. I will try to add them soon. Thanks!

Here's a pic of one of the chairs before restoration.

The selection of oak boards for the backrests by the JH woodworker was excellent. Stunning grain pattern well suited to its location on the chair.
