Q: Do you know of anyone in Akron who does chair caning?
— Jean Johnston, Akron
A: I’m aware of three chair caners, all of them in Cuyahoga Falls:
• Jan Noall, 330-929-0715. She does caning and is also the contact for the Chair Caners of Cuyahoga Falls, a group that meets weekly at Lions Lodge. Experienced members of the group will cane chairs for a fee.
• Fran’s Chair Caning, 330-928-7577.
• Sir Roberts Furniture, 330-688-0199.
All do hand caning and also repair chairs with machine-woven cane.
