The Wooden Rocking Chair, an American Tradition

For us, wood is a medium as well as a construction material--a medium bringing the life and spirit of its tree into the touch, comfort, and support of our patrons and their heirs. Our wood rocking chairs fully express the possibilities of this material. (See Design and Craftsmanship.)

The Company and the Rocking Chairs
Gary Weeks and Company and some of our rocking chairs.

In the living room, parlor, nursery, or on the porch, a rocker explains itself and is as unremarkable as a refrigerator in a kitchen—unless it is a really good one. This we build—a really good one, a remarkable one. (See remarks.)
