Featured Entrepreneur Of The Month
Scott Carver-Chair Caning Services
Scott lived in downtown Houston, and worked for a workshop for a couple of years. There, he prepared envelopes for a mailing company.
How it started
In the 1980s, Scott began working in a caning workshop where he started doing chair weaving. In 2009, Scott moved north of Houston to Kingwood, Texas. After a couple of years, a friend asked him to weave two porch chairs. When doing this, Scott knew that he could take his talent of chair weaving and turn it into his own business.
Scott Carver Business
Scott is proud to own his own business and is thrilled to be able to provide for himself and be financially stable. Chair weaving has become a passion for Scott. Knowing his work will make the customer happy, Scott enjoys and loves what he does.
