Howdy Gary,

Hoping all is well. Here’s my take on the rocker.

My solid cherry rocking chair arrived recently. Virtus Propter Se - Excellence or virtue for it’s own sake ! This is an art object of stunning beauty. Transcendental hand craft. Seemingly impossible? Except: there it is.

I’m a retired master carpenter living in a cabin in central Alaska. A custom rocker has been a long time desire. I’m a minimalist so I had to think carefully if this was the material possession to add to my small cabin. I’ve had a lifelong pursuit of high skill levels in a number of areas : virtuoso classical piano studies, degrees in classical piano and philosophy, 40 years of carpentry and woodworking, serious reading, long distance paddling, skiing, and backpacking, subsistence hunting and fishing, building a homestead, etc. I say all that to say - I’m a bit of a fanatic when it comes to skill and excellence! It takes a great deal to turn my head. My head has been turned. I’ve carefully scrutinized the rocker. It’s as close to perfection as any piece I’ve seen. Kind of spooky actually. The closest I’ve seen is a master wooden boat builder I knew when I lived in the Alaskan coastal village of Haines.

Gary,family and the entire group are extremely easy to work with. And lastly, although not cheap, the chair is very reasonably priced. Frankly, I don’t know how a product of this quality can be made for the price?

I’m already thinking I might need a straight chair at some point!

Hi Gary,

All arrived safely yesterday!!!!

The chair and table are stunningly beautiful!!! I find myself rocking in the chair (it's difficult to leave it) and admiring the table - the craftsmanship is outstanding.

Many thanks to you and the team - I'm sure we'll enjoy these pieces for many, many years and will send good thoughts to you all as we rock.

Best wishes,

Gary,

Just wanted to let you know that K. received her Rocker yesterday. The piece was safely delivered and opened without incident (K. said the trucking company complemented the quality of the packing crate).

K. is absolutely thrilled with the finished product. She sent a number of pictures, and I have to say the workmanship on the piece is just fantastic. I just know that this gift will be well used and appreciated for many, many years.

Thank you and your team so much for putting together such a special piece of furniture. I have already hinted to my team that when I eventually retire, they will not go wrong if I happened to get a similar gift!

Best regards,

S.

Hi Gary

It is truly magnificent and has made isolation much more tolerable. It fits like a glove, is smooth as silk and everyday I appreciate another aspect of it.

Are you aware that when the headboard and arms are tapped with a finger they are tuned to a perfect B natural - no kidding.

Wishing you and yours well

A Facebook Review

“This is a magnificent piece of furniture--finely crafted, smooth, comfortable. It's a joy to sit in this rocker. Ours was shipped right away, and Gary was in touch regularly to make sure we had shipping details and were satisfied with our purchase. You need a Weeks Rocker!”

Gary,

The chair was delivered today, in perfect condition, with the stool nestled inside. Great job packing the chair! And the cardboard we'll use as weed barrier under pine straw. The cardboard ought to work for years. It's good and thick.

We have a pair again, at last. And in time for our golden years. One delightful note is the degree that cherry darkens over time. Our old chair is 20 years darker. I know cherry does that, but will the new chair ever catch up--that is, does the darkening slow down? And may we both live to 90 to find out. For now, we have his and her chairs, with hers of course being the one I didn't destroy and replace.

A bow and hat tip to you and all your crew! Very, very well done! Y'all give life to these chairs--make them characters in our story. And that's rare, indeed.

Thank you so much.

One more thing. The use of grain is masterful. I just love it.

Hi Gary,

Just wanted to let you know that the rocker has been delivered without a hitch.

This chair is truly impressive. It looks so beautiful and feels so comfortable and well made. And what I didn't expect is that it smells really good, too.

Thank you for such prompt, fantastic service and construction of such a quality heirloom. If you do this sort of thing... can you please let your staff know that we appreciate how much obvious care and craftsmanship went into this rocking chair for a faceless yet appreciative customer?

Have a great day,
H.
