I would like to highly recommend Five Star Chair Caning for the exceptional caning work provided by Jack Tomlinson of Vero Beach, Florida. I never thought I would be able to find anyone who could deliver the intricate and complex techniques required that would restore my rare and irreplaceable Rawalpindi plantation chair. The size, curvature and unusual design of this keepsake chair offered a challenge, but Mr. Tomlinson mastered the task. The art and science of his craft patiently applied produced a perfect result. I could not be happier and am thankful to have my chair so beautifully restored. Thank you Mr. Tomlinson for keeping your craft, talent and the tradition of caning ongoing for those who appreciate your special abilities as well as your kind service.

Jack does amazing work! He just re-caned a 200 year old chair with great care, workmanship and even improved the durability with new dowels. I recommend him highly.

Jack has an amazing talent and is a perfectionist and true craftsman. He has painstakingly restored cane furnishings for my design clients, turning forgotten family heirlooms that were going to be tossed because they seemed beyond repair, back into beautiful, functional treasures.

Jack has repaired several pieces of furniture for me. Recently, he replaced the entire seat of a rush chair. Excellent workmanship and prompt service. I highly recommend Jack.

Jack repaired a sentimental chair that belonged to Rick’s mother. The chair looks amazing. Jack did a very professional job and we would highly recommend Jack for all repairs. Julianne & Rick D, Vero Beach, FL
After seeing Jacks work on a chair he had done as well as refinishing I hired him to work on my Tea Cart. I just want you to know this Tea cart is well over 100 years old and never trusted anyone with it before. The job was about the best you would ever imagine and more. It looks like it did when I was a child. Now it still looks like a antique because of the beautiful job he does on caning. So you can trust him to Cane anything and you will be extremely happy as I am.

Being new to the Vero Beach area I searched for a chair caning repair company and I found Jack. His professional workmanship is amazing. Every detail on my chairs were perfectly repaired and restored. My 40-year-old chairs look better than brand new. I would highly recommend Jack, a very talented craftsman.
