Furniture manufacturing companies, late 1800s / early 1900s

My great-great-grandfather moved from West Virginia to Mt. Airy, NC, sometime around 1883. In the 1900 census his occupation is listed as "chair bottoms." Would he have been working in a local furniture manufacturing company? I cannot visualize being self-employed making chair bottoms but I suppose that is possible. Are there any books in print concerning Mt. Airy companies around that period of time?
