We are so glad to hear from you.
J. delivered their first baby on the 19th of December. Your Weeks rockers are the most beautiful and comfortable rockers anywhere! One of the best touches we have had is to meet the gal who actually made the rocking chair and delivered the chair! Autumn delivered the chair on the way to her Thanksgiving holiday with family. I was surprised at how young she is and how accomplished she is in woodworking. She delivered a top quality rocker...
You have grown the business so much, I practically don't recognize you. Ken and I bought our rocker several years earlier when your website was a little older and a lot fuzzier in appearance. The website is so professional compared to back then. I first found you by searching the web for rocking chairs that fit both short and tall people. Our family has people from 5 feet to 6'3”...
I love the Weeks rocking chair and frequently have people sit in it just for the experience, because it is such a lovely experience. The balance of the rocker makes for a soothing rock instead of a store bought clunky rock that requires more force to keep it going and "jumps" halfway through the rock because it isn't balanced properly. (think the white porch rockers that are sold everywhere or the more expensive rockers in a furniture store--there is simply no comparison)
Again, your craftsmanship is superb!
Merry Christmas to your family and family of Gary Weeks & Company!

Gary and Autumn,
I received the Weeks Rocking Chair and footstool this afternoon. No damage was found. The rocker is fantastic! Well made, beautiful wood, fits my body like a glove. When I was in college and medical school I always used a rocker for reading/studying... Now that I am retired..., I have been looking for a great rocking chair and believe that I have found it.

Congratulations on your 30th anniversary! I have had my Weeks Rocker now for 23 years and it is still rocking away in great shape. I love this rocker and I have experienced many ups and downs in this chair, and now that I am retired I spend many happy days and evenings listening to music in my Weeks masterpiece. I cherish it and want to thank for your creativity, craftsmanship, and commitment to quality.

Our cherry rocker and foot stool arrived today. It is both beautiful and functional. It is so comfortable, and we love all the attention to detail. We are so pleased in every regard. Thanks so much!

Thanks for getting back with me Gary, I appreciate it.
Just a note regarding the rocker and your company. I was really anticipating the arrival of the rocker and even though I had seen photos a number of times on your website I was blown away when I opened the box. Wow, the rocker is a true piece of “functional” art and you and your crew clearly take great pride in your work. To say I’m disappointed to have to return the rocker is an understatement. I appreciate you taking a chance on me and your no-nonsense return policy. I’m sure you receive very few pieces of your furniture back. I’ll spread the word about your fine furniture!
Take care Gary,

Hi Austin - just a quick update to say the rocking chair has arrived and I love it! All went smoothly with the delivery as planned. The chair itself was lighter than I'd expected, and once we had it out of the crate it was easy to transport up to my suite. I also appreciate that most of your your shipping material can be recycled.
Thank you for making this beautiful and comfortable chair. The quality of the wood and the workmanship is impeccable. Thank you also for your support throughout the process of cross-border shipping.
With very best wishes,

Both rockers were received. They were sent to two colleagues who retired and both were very pleased with the quality and thoughtfulness of the gift.
This is the second time I have placed an order with you and once again your communication and craftsmanship was outstanding!

Dear Mr. Weeks,
Yes, the chair arrived safely a little more than a week ago. I was surprised how light it was and how sturdy. It is beautiful and perfect for the setting in our chapel.
I am very grateful for your craftsmanship and for you allowing me to request the changes to the length of the arms.

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.
