Gary and co....THANKS.
Having gone thru several local high end stores sitting in all they had that looked as if I could tolerate it in the house, when I first
sat in my new cherry rocker, so scant and unbulky and beautiful....amazing. And yes, last nite after couple hours on that beautiful
hardwood my bony bottom was beginning to want some pad… Anyway, you have my gratitude and admiration in full. What a joy to deal with
a craftsman and his family. Am a retired eng. and kinda putter around wood lover and builder of my simple oak desk now holding my laptop.
Believe I can fully appreciate the skill, love and care that went into every aspect, not the least of which is your incredible box and packing.

The only chair I considered at the high end store was a stressless from Sweden or Denmark. It cost 500 more than my chair from you. I asked
the very nice saleswoman "is this like the car dealer, when I leave the shop with the chair there is no option to return? She said that is correct" I said "why
would I risk nearly 3000 to try that??

Anyway, am interested in your pad you are working on, because I KNOW it will work with your chairs....you are that kind of guy.

ps Son visiting here is a structural engineer. He is very impressed, and found it comfy

Best, and have a blessed Thanksgiving

Hi Autumn,
I’m so glad you got the check! And yes, I received the stool yesterday. It’s absolutely beautiful paired with the rocker, of course—I’ve attached a picture. I also included a photo that hangs on the wall behind it—it’s of the rocker with me and my daughter, for whose birth the rocker was a gift back in 2003. She’s in college now!
Thanks again for such quality work, and wonderful customer service. I hope to work with you again in the future.
Cheers,L.

This popped up on my Facebook memories yesterday and thought I’d share. 8 years and we are still in love with this chair. There’s not been a person who’s visited our home who hasn’t commented on its beauty and comfort. I think if our house were on fire, we might grab the chair before the dog. Well, we’d throw the dog on the chair and rescue them at the same time!!

Autumn,

My rocker stool and side table just got unpacked. Of course the packing was bombproof. But easy to take off.

The furniture could not be more beautiful. It’s everything I had hoped…

Thanks again, and please pass on to everyone how pleased I am with their work…

Very best
K.

Another thought on the furniture.

Some furniture is pretty…… but not comfortable. Others ugly, but comfy.

After spending much time looking at, touching and rocking I am reminded of a quote by a very well thought of marine architect, Chuck Paine, when describing Nathaniel Herreshoff’s daysailer design the 12 1/2. He said “ It is the perfect small boat, and cannot be improved in any way.” The rocker, table, and stool cannot be improved.

Another little term I learned in Maine when one refers to something that is “ just right” is “Yare”. Your work is just that.

Hi Gary,

Thanks for the email.

The rocking chair made it safe and sound to our home.

All of the family have been sitting in it, enjoying it and commenting how comfortable and beautiful it is.

Gary Week’s rocker is absolutely the most comfortable rocker around, as this is the last place I sit before climbing into bed. Often I doze off, rocking away.

I own many rocking chairs—from antique mission rockers and caned seated ones to creaky, old wooden ones. I also have rocking chairs on both outside patios—vintage metal rocking chairs that I restored and the polywood rockers. I have a total of 10 rocking chairs dotted in my home or outside areas. If there is a rocking chair in a room, that’s where I want to sit.

With that said, my husband and I recently retired. We wanted chairs in our TV room that were super comfortable and were pleasing to the eye. All I wanted was a rocking chair. My husband googled “best rocking chairs.” We found Gary Weeks. His shop is located in Texas. I am in Philadelphia. I was concerned about purchasing a piece of furniture without sitting in it or even seeing it. I called the shop. Gary immediately called me back. I shared my concerns. He assured me that if I was not totally satisfied with the rocker, he would pay for shipping back and give me a total refund, including the initial shipping cost. So, I thought this could work.

The wood Gary uses is stunning. It is as if sunshine is in the room at all times. The craftsmanship is incredible. I have arthritis in my shoulder. The armrests are perfectly aligned with your spine. I feel no pain or discomfort while sitting in this chair. The back is amazing for lumbar support. If you watch Gary Weeks’s video on his website, it discusses all the comfort points. This was what sold me initially. And, the promises he makes are real. It is the most comfortable chair —hands down—around. It is a piece of art. It is designed to support your body’s structure. As I said in the beginning of this review, Gary Weeks’s rocking chair is the last place I sit before climbing into my bed. It lulls me to sleep. You will not be disappointed.

Hi Austin,
We LOVE the rocking chair. It arrived safely to my MIL.’s house in Virginia. She’s afraid to have it downstairs because she says it’s the nicest piece of furniture in her house. But I think she’ll get used to it! Here's photo of grandma and baby. It also suits my husband and his 6’5” height. .... Thanks again! We just adore the chair.

Hi Gary and Austin,The Maple Rocker has been delivered and my daughter is so very happy, she says it is "Beautiful!" and has sent me 3 photos of her sitting in it and beaming. Plenty of room for the little one in her tummy too.
She looks so happy and comfortable. Made my day / month/ year so far : )

Hello Gary and co,
I just wanted to send an enormous thank you for the beautiful rocking chair and stool I received in December. This chair has been the go-to for everyone who rocks our new baby girl and it’s my absolute favorite space to nurse. I’m sitting in it now and don’t want to get up :). Both the chair and the foot stool are gorgeous, extremely comfortable and I feel the love and care oozing out of every thoughtful curve. What an excellent thing to create and share with the world, thank you so much.

I hope you all have a beautiful spring and very successful year. Xo
