Hi Gary, It's A.L.
[transcibed from the answering machine, GW]

I just got my chair, this afternoon — delivered, and its absolutely beautiful. I love it, I absolutely love it and it's so comfortable and it's just a work of art. Being here in New York, it really cheers me up just in time for Thanksgiving. Thanks for all your hard work and making it so pretty. Hopefully we'll talk again. Have a good Thanksgiving.

Gary —

We love the chairs! They are so comfortable and beautifully crafted. Thanks again for all your hard work and building the chairs so quickly. We hope to visit the shop sometime soon and see more of your work.

Dear Gary:

You may recall our visit to your workshop on Saturday, July 1st. You will be pleased to know that after our visit to California to see some other handmade rocking chairs, there is no competition! Your rocking chairs win in terms of comfort and artistic quality — it helped that you pointed out your matching of grains, lamination, method of joining, etc. — as we might have overlooked these qualities otherwise.

Please accept this as our order for two of The Weeks Rockers in Cherry. Enclosed is our deposit check of $500, with the remainder payable when the rockers are near completion.

Yours truly,

Dear Mr. Weeks

We have been enjoying the rocker (#162/1995) purchased from you almost five years ago, and very much appreciate the comfort and beauty of the chair. But it is the excellent workmanship that makes it such a treasure to us!

We are wondering if make any other items. If so, would you please send us information and prices about them?

Thank you.

Dear Gary & Company:

I received the rocker last week and unpacked it as you recommended. It arrived in perfect shape.

The rocker is awesome! The craftsmanship and attention to detail is a special talent. I know that mesquite wood is a challenge to find and hard to work, but you have created an heirloom piece that my wife and I know will have a special inheritance. At present it is by the back door where it is used multiple times daily — it will have a special place in the office I am going to add to our home.

Debbie and I are looking forward to coming to your workshop one day.

Thank you!

Dear Gary,

Just a note to let you know how much enjoyment I reap from my "Weeks Rocker." Looking at it is a pleasure in itself thanks to the efforts you and your team put forth to produce it. And that's not to mention the joy derived from sitting and rocking in it. We appreciate the chair and its producer. We wish you continued success.

Again, thanks for a product that is a true treasure.

Dear Gary,

I thought I'd drop you a note to say how much we enjoy the chair (walnut rocker). It is in our living room and looks and feels great. We very much appreciate your work, enjoyed meeting you, and look forward to seeing you again.

Dear Leslie and Gary,

It was really fun visiting you and two of your offspring, and touring your interesting and amazing workshop. Hope you've received some rain and are not suffering too much from the heat.

Unlike the chair pictured on this notecard (which is not lacking in personality and charm), our Weeks Rocker is a thing of beauty. Comfortable. Gorgeous. We are so thrilled! Thank you, Gary, for creating such a lovely, perfect work of art. Our descendants will enjoy it too.

Dear Gary,

The chair is a pleasure to sit in, a joy to the eye, and sensuous to the touch. The wood is fine to start with, carefully matched, and finely finished. In short, I am impressed and pleased.

Dear Gary,

Just a quick note to let you know how much J. and I are enjoying our rocking chairs and how proud we are to have these fine pieces of furniture in our home.

The enjoyment they bring to our daily routine and the compliments we receive about their beauty and comfort are gratifying; however, they also are a fond reminder of our ties to the Hill Country and our getting to know you. A couple of weeks ago, as I applied the annual coat of lemon oil for the second time, I was once again impressed by the dedication to detail and the excellent craftsmanship that went into their construction.

Thanks again.
