Thanks, Nona477, for your reply.
Some follow-up questions: Do you inform the customer about charges for your husband to repair the chair BEFORE you proceed? How have you found the customer to react?
How did you come up with 21 cents a square inch for your pressed cane? Did you work off pricing for 24" wide cane?

Thanks for all your info.
