Dear “All who make this possible”
We just received our second shipment of dining room chairs, the first shipment being about a year ago. They are wonderful, along with the maple rocker we purchased last year.
My thanks and appreciation are directed at all involved in making such consistently beautiful creations. I speak as a retired farmer who knows the challenges of running a business as well as a beginning woodworker who know the challenges making something that I a proud to have in my house that has no screws holding it together!
Here is a list of my thanks, please let all the ones who had a part in the process know of my love for the excellence of their work.
Design beauty, flowing lines strength functionality
Wood storage all the difficulty involved
Wood selection and cutting for best appearance
The Shop, machines buildings maintained, and safety dust control
Consistency in parts matching
Skills at band saw, courage at table saw
Joinery amazing shoulder and dowel work
Gluing never a crack
Finish sanding and coats of finish, spotless
Care in handling, a ding at the end ruins a lot of work, as I know!
Culture of excellence requires skilled management and dedicated employees
Family continuity a tribute to family dynamics
Great office correspondence
I feel love in your work.
I know I have missed someone, I apologize for that.
How we do what we do really does matter.

Hi Gary!
Thank you very much for the kind note! Austin has been great to work and communicate with, and I appreciate you both being so accommodating with our sliding schedule. As you probably know, I purchased a gorgeous figured mesquite chair and stool years ago. When I became in charge of helping design and get my parent's new house built, I immediately thought of you. My mother is coming up to see the new furniture this weekend, so I'm very excited for that! I'm a big supporter off quality, handmade furniture, and I'm sure I'll be a customer into the future as well.

I'm sure you like having your son involved. I've had a distillery business, and my 17 year old son has started helping me after school and part time in the summer. It's doesn't get any better than a family business -- especially when you get to make something from scratch with your hands!

Thanks Gary!The new barstools are fantastic — beautiful and perfect matches to our original Weeks stools.Having sat on a lot of stools over the years, I can truthfully say that these are my favorites — simple, comfortable, and great lines...

To all of you at Gary Weeks & Co.:

We continue to enjoy the kitchen table and chairs as well as the rocker that you made for us nearly 10 years ago.

We wish you continued success!

Omg Gary, I’m sitting at my island with the top and stools from you and I’m ecstatic about them! I know you have many accolades for the woodwork and pieces but I will tell you that passing the torch to the next generation (like Austin and Autumn) is a notable accomplishment these days.

Thanks for the note, I appreciate it.

By the way, I’ve started using one of our armchairs for my daily meditation—it’s perfect for the task.

Dear Gary,

The chairs are beautiful. M. and I enjoy looking at them with all the detail and clever construction.We appreciate the harmonies and the fluid lines and overall grace and sophistication within American modern/classic design. They add richness to our surroundings and bring a sense of timeless and natural beauty to our home. The chairs are very comfortable and a joy to sit in.Autumn’s delivery was with great care and we appreciate her knowledge and insight. Thank you very much. It was a great experience working with you on the woods and getting a chance to see and work in your shop.Best wishes to y’all .

Sincerely,D. and M.

PS, as I don’t have his email, please forward our appreciation to Austin as well - I very much appreciate his craftsmanship, time and patience with me!
