Hi Gary,

We are so pleased with the chair - yet again! B. was blown away by the craftsmanship and how comfortable a chair it is! She said "It is more comfortable than my couch!"

Thank you for helping us carry on this wonderful tradition!

Enjoy your new one!

Gary,

When Forrest called I told him I was tickled to hear from him and he said that he had the world's most beautiful rocking chair on his truck for me. He was not lying! It is absolutely gorgeous! The grain is beautiful, the matching and alignment of the grain on separate pieces is amazing and the workmanship is beyond anything I've seen. Every day I find some detailed piece of craftsmanship that blows me away. If you can't tell, I LOVE the chair.

The one question I have is care and feeding for the chair. From the website it would appear the my rocker has an oil finish and not wanting to do anything that might detract from it's beauty I'd appreciate knowing what you would recommend to clean and treat it. [see: https://garyweeks.com/furniture/maintenance/]

Again, I love the rocker and dealing with everyone connected with it has been a pleasure. Thank you so much.

All the Best for you, your family and your workers,

Hi Gary and Autumn – the rocker, footstool and table arrived on Friday, March 5th.

I must say, the packing in the those containers was so secure. Everything arrived with our a scratch and shipping boxes showed no sign of being dropped or crushed.

Most importantly, the furniture is lovely and I do believe the rocker will be an heirloom in our family. Many thanks for the fine craftsmanship and good service. Please pass our thanks to your team in shop...

With thanks,

Gary & Austin,

First off, wow and thank you all! HIS chair is amazing - amazingly beautiful and rockingly soothing. I have now tried it out for two weeks, getting almost an hour a day in it and couldn't be happier with the craftsmanship. In fact, my hands (and eyes) have travelled every surface and are still singing its praises.

THE GARY WEEKS ROCKING CHAIR EXPERIENCE

Most of my adult life I searched for the perfect chair.

When I opened the box of my brand-new rocker, I was struck by the beautiful color and finish.

As soon as I sat in it, I totally relaxed. I could sit in the rocker without it moving or, just by almost thinking or moving my toes slightly, it would begin to rock.

The sheer sturdiness of its composition. The smoothness of the finish was like silk on wood.

I felt like I was sitting in a tree in a garden.

The slats on the back supports the concavity of the lumbar spine, as does the neck for the cervical spine. It is pitched perfectly as if he understands the mechanics of the body.

The arms slightly swerve backwards to the let the blood flow back to the heart. The arm rests allow you to support the arms and hands without fear of them falling off.

The embedded dowels and the little touches give the chair a classic stature. The wood is friendly to the body and almost needs no cushion.

One feels close to nature, especially in New York City.

Hi Gary

It is indeed an exceptional chair, on all levels, including how it promotes excellent posture.

You have both my gratitude as well as my respect.

Thank you for checking in.

Kind regards,

Hi Gary and team

My good friends R. and C. bough me a cherry rocking chair for my retirement. I’ve been a dental specialist for 30 years, dealing in fractions of a millimetre my whole career. i can honestly say i would let Gary and his team do surgery on me.

The quality of this rocking chair is second to none. Absolutely, amazing.

Thank you very much to you and your team for being so dedicated to perfection.

Gary,

The rocker is the only chair I have used since Christmas, it is wonderful. I keep running my hands over it and feeling the perfect edges and transitions. I love the ridge on the front of the rear leg that runs from the crest rail and disappears into the arm rest and the carefully chiseled chamfer where the crest blends into the leg. I keep reaching down to feel the crisp sharp corners of the seat corner against the smooth edges of the rear leg. I tried to find some sign of imperfection and nothing, it is hard to tell that human hands have touched it

The rocker is by far the nicest piece of furniture that I will ever own but on a $ per hour basis I suspect it will end up being the cheapest!

Wanted to share how a 25-year-old classic pecan rocker of yours looks with a matching side table you made this year. My mother left me her beloved rocker, and I know she would adore this handsome pair. Your design and craftsmanship are wearing very well !

Thanks again—totally love it!
