Hi Gary,

Oh, I miss the "hold and rock the baby for naps" phase! My youngest is 6 and our third child, and by the time she arrived, I had learned how quickly that phase passes. I savored every moment and miss it so much.

The desk arrived perfectly. The delivery team was a bit nervous it wouldn't fit through the door but it did. And it looks marvelous in the room. I will take and send a picture when it is nighttime!

I am so honored to have this treasure for her, and for her to cherish it as something handmade and to be passed down to her future children. Thank you for making it for us.

Happy Holidays and New Year!

When we found out Ramona was pregnant in 2005, I went on a hunt for the perfect rocking chair. I found Gary Weeks and Company Furnituremakers.

They made the audacious claim that if it wasn't the most comfortable chair you had ever sat in, send it back, they'd pay shipping both ways.

When the crate finally arrived, it, the crate, was built better than most furniture I've ever seen. The chair itself is beyond compare. It's elegant, and solid. It rocks beautifully. And I spent many a night rocking my daughter to sleep in it.

And yes, it's the most comfortable chair I've ever sat in. And it's one of the most beautiful things I own. It will be in the family for generations.

Hi Gary,

It was so, so nice to get your message! And now, I've taken too long to reply. But I have to tell you: That day was so wonderful. I loved every minute I spent at your place, and everything we did was a fun surprise. You made me feel so special.

I'll admit that I've looked at your site a few times since then, wondering if future customers have seen that video. My hope is that any who might one day view it will know that my words were heartfelt, and the crack in my voice was genuine, and I hope that outshines any nervousness on my part. Please let me know when the new company has reworked the site so I can take a peek.

And you are so right that our grandbaby is no longer a baby. J. is 19+ months. C.and P. and J. love their rocker. In fact, when I told C. about your e-mail, she said J. loves it so much, she's tried to knock a hole in the wall, to no avail. The chair is still perfect, even with her abuse and their move last year to Houston (Richmond, actually). We'll be out there several times this year — J. is going to be a big sister at the end of August, beginning of September (gender unknown until delivery). I look forward to visiting Wimberley again, and bringing the rest of the family.

I've attached a few pictures. Dad P. sent me one earlier this year. C. sent some others after your e-mail came and said J. wasn't in a "posing" mood, but I think she was. Use them if you'd like.

I received my rocker April 2002, after the birth of my son. What a gift to rock that sweet baby.
I wanted y'all to see this rocker was one of the only pieces of furniture that survived our house fire on May 16th. I am so grateful to still have this and to pass it down someday to rock a grand baby.

Mr. Weeks,

. . . It was ordered under J. B. in Richardson, Tx. Probably March of 2002.
I had been watching your lead time and when I finally ordered the chair, the lead time had been extended. I called you office, nearly in tears and a sweet lady assured me I would have my rocker in time to rock my baby. And I did!
A side note, my family owns Kent Mill & Supply in Waco an architectural millwork company. When my brother came up to see his new nephew, he took one look at the rocking chair and said, "is that a Weeks Rocker?!" He then laid it on its back to verify.
Y'all are well respected among your peers.
Thank you for blessing us. Keep up the fantastic craftsmanship.

I'm sorry for not messaging sooner. The chair has arrived. It is beautiful, comfortable, and we are thrilled to bring it with us as we become parents.

Thank you again for the time and care you put into it. It means a lot to us. We'll send another photo with someone in it once the baby is born!

Gary, Austin and others:

First above anything else, thank you so much from the M. family for providing what has to be the most comfortable and relaxing chair in our entire house. Not a day goes by where we don't admire its beauty or sit in its welcoming form. Upon its arrival, I claimed it as my primary chair in the house. Upon the birth of our daughter, mom has summarily displaced me from this fictitious right and uses it every day for nursing, comforting as well as some well deserved napping. Each person that puts eyes on it for the first time is really quite taken with its beauty and craftsmanship. We couldn't be more happy with having this chair in our house and as part of our family. It will truly last a lifetime and beyond and I couldn't be more proud to pass this piece along to the future M. generation.

Thanks again for providing such a wonderful piece. We absolutely love it.

Gary Weeks Team,

Wanted to assure you that the rocker arrived in perfect condition and the freight delivery driver was exceedingly nice and helpful getting it out of the box.

What a beautiful rocker. We knew you were the one to build it when we discovered your furniture. Thanks for the family heirloom our little girl and entire family will cherish. As a dad to be I have already been practicing my rocking technique! Very comfortable!

Thanks again on behalf of my mother and my wife and me. Best to you and your family and the entire team at Gary Weeks!

Hey Gary,

We got the rocker. It's absolutely gorgeous, and sitting in it brings me right back to my time in our house in Wimberley. It's more meaningful to me than I can ever express. We feel the love you've all put into it, and I we can't thank you enough. And thank you for the kind words. We will be rocking our boy to sleep as long as he can fit in our arms.

Thank you all so very much.

Kind regards and with much love,
D. & A.

Hi Gary,

The rocker has indeed made it to K. and J. and they are so very excited. It made it there safe and sound. K. thinks it is absolutely beautiful and could not be happier. Thank you for letting us bring a beautiful and comforting part of Wimberley to K., J. and our future grand-daughter.

Have a great weekend and Thank you for everything,
M. & C.
