Dear Gary,

Arrived! Unpacked!! Situated!!! My son enthusiastically and most carefully unwrapped the solid crate and placed my priceless possession in the den, its permanent home.

So I came home from work to pure delight. Perfection. Such exquisite craftsmanship!! The chair is even more beautiful than the pictures, with the wood patterns so cleverly assembled. The construction details are flawless. And the smoothness of the wood is simply incredible. This rocker will now provide decades of comfort and soothing pleasure, destined as the family heirloom.

I want to passionately thank you, Gary, for your truly personal and outstanding customer service. You never failed to provide information, honesty, and patience with my endless questions during countless communications throughout the whole process.

Too, I realize the whole team (including your gifted son Austin) participated in the rocker's creation. Thank you to everyone for your very professional work and care. Actually, the Gary Weeks' rocker is a masterpiece of furniture making. Made in America and so very proud of your company and MY new chair!

Most sincerely,
R.

Hi Gary,
I'm so grateful for the hard work you and the team put into this chair- I can really feel it! I'm very happy to have a chair like the one my parents have back in Texas, it's like carrying a little piece of Texas with me here on the East Coast, which is wonderful. Wishing you and yours the best!

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,

We have a profound appreciation for the artistry that goes into the design and construction of your pieces. Your rocking chair brings a smile to my face every time I look at it. Our house has several family antique pieces from the 18th and 19th centuries, and I feel confident that your pieces will be part of the cherished family heirlooms we pass along to future generations.

Regards,

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!”
