Check Out Our Seat Weaving and Chair Caning


chair caningIn addition to furniture hardware, Furniture Knowledge also specializes in chair parts and caning supplies. One very common type of chair caning material 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.  Cane webbing is a lot easier and less time consuming to use for restorations than its counterpart, hole-to-hole hand caning.

Really, the hardest part of re-caning using cane webbing, is getting rid of the old glue and old cane and cleaning out the groove.  At first, it might look intimidating but when you get into it, you will really enjoy it.  Whether you need 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 to get the job done well. We carry chair caning instructional videos and books to help you get started.


We also carry up-to-date chair parts, swivel plates, rocker springs, and more to fix office and other modern chairs.


Hoosier Cabinet Parts & Hoosier Style Accessories


furniture hardwareDo you own or need to fix up your Hoosier Style cabinet?  We have the Hoosier Cabinet Parts you need.  A Hoosier cabinet is a type of cupboard that was popular in the first few decades of the 20th century. They were named after Hoosier Manufacturing Co. of New Castle, Indiana.  The cabinets were also made by several other companies like Wilson, Boone, Napanee, McDougall, and Sellers, just to name a few.

The typical Hoosier Style cabinet consisted of three separate parts and had many Hoosier style accessories. The first was the base of the cabinet.  It mostly just had one large compartment with a slide out shelf and several drawers to one side. Often 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 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 at the time). They had tin hoppers and sugar bins were also common. Custom glass jars 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 four to eight 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 1920’s. Around that time, houses began to be built with more modern kitchens with built-in cabinets and other fixtures. This 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.
