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.
May 26, 2022Hi 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.

Thank you for reaching out. The rocker is absolutely wonderful. It is better than I could have ever imagined. C. loves it and basically can not stop talking about how much he loves it. The wood is so soft, the shape and size is perfect. It is currently living in our living room because he would like to sit in it by the fire every night of the winter before moving out to the porch for spring.
Thanks again for such wonderful craftsmanship and customer service. It means the world!

Thanks for the follow up, the rocking chair is just what I was looking for, something generational where it’s craftsmanship and beauty would last from generation to generation.

My wife was quite surprised when she received the rocker and as you would probably expect, my wife loves it. The shape is perfect along with the woodwork. She was also amazed that while it fits her at 5’3” is also fits me at 6’1”. I’m not sure how you accomplished that because we’ve never found a rocker that both of us like. At present, she plans to share it with me. We’ll see how that works out!
From my perspective, I was amazed at the care you took in sending the rocker. It could have been picked up at your factory from the looks of the packaging right off the truck. Upon opening the box, I was exceptionally pleased with the care you took in making sure the rocker would have not even a scratch upon arrival. Your rocker is the best packaged item I’ve ever bought.
Thanks for all your help to make our 50th anniversary a special day for both of us.

There were two or three reasons I wanted one of your rockers, but primary in my mind was to honor your commitment to true craftsmanship and your dedication to preserving craft traditions. I am pleased to see that your business is thriving as others must recognize and value similar ideals. You will leave a remarkable legacy.
The rocker now has a pride of place in my living room. Stop by and see it next time you’re up this way.

Just wanted to let you know that we received the rocker in fine shape and couldn’t be more pleased with the result! It’s everything you claimed it would be and then some: stunning in design, beauty, workmanship and comfort. Kudos to everyone involved in the design and production of such a work of art, and I don’t use that term lightly!
You have a company to be proud of.
