Hi, Gary,
[transcribed from the answering machine, GW]

This is a satisfied customer calling from Harlingen, Texas. The two chairs arrived in perfect condition. I've had the chairs for three days now, and for the last three days in a row, I have fallen asleep sitting bolt upright in your chair. I can't say that about any other chair. Good job.

Dear Gary,

I couldn't wait to drop you a note to tell you how much I love our two new walnut Wilson chairs! They are absolutely gorgeous--truly pieces of art!!! We feel so fortunate to have acquired them, and they look fabulous on either side of our sideboard in the living room. We truly do appreciate all the craftsmanship, time, effort, and attention to detail that went into these fabulous chairs, and simply had to let you know how much we love them. We keep sitting in them and running our hands over the wood . . . well, you get the picture.

Again, thank you so very, very much for these beautiful chairs!

We bought our Cherry Rocker from you Christmas 1998 . . . It still the most striking piece of art / furniture we have!!! Now it is time to consider a new dining room ensemble. Please send me a catalog.

Dear Gary Weeks and Company,

Enclosed find check in payment of invoice for the beautiful walnut dining table and six chairs. We fully intend to enjoy them for as long as we are "able to enjoy." And we do indeed highly value the craftsmanship that went into creating these pieces —

Best regards,

Just a quick note to let you know that J. loves her new rocking chair (and so do I)! It's as nice to look at as it is to sit in. It's also a big hit with my parents (I might have to get my brother to pitch in and get my dad a chair for Christmas before he steals ours).

Best regards,

Gary & Leslie,

I just wanted to send a message saying that although we've had only limited time to experience the chairs at this point, they are beautiful & the workmanship is incredible. Thank you!

But I have sat in the rocker long enough to know that the bonding that will take place there with my grandchildren in my lap will be among life's greatest treasures — & blessings

Thanks again.

Dear Gary,

Thank you so much for a wonderful handcrafted Rocker. What a gift it is being able to create such a beautiful piece of furniture that will last forever and make generations to come happy. It's so wonderful and N., our 10-week old girl, loves being rocked in it. Please find Mommy and Daddy whilst enjoying rocking little N.

Best regards from New Jersey to Texas from

What a beautiful chair/heirloom/piece of art. Judy could not have been more surprised — Most definitely worth the wait, and now she knows why I was ignoring her constant requests for a chair.

Thanks again.

Dear Gary,

Just a note to say I have moved and the rocker M. got for me has a whole group of new admirers. Everyone who sits in it says — it just fits. Interesting because short or tall, thin or wide, they all say that.

Thanks for the quality of workmanship your furniture shows. It has been a real joy to own.

Keep up the good work —

We adore our cherry Mitchell Trestle table, and our star-inlayed chairs are by far the most comfortable imaginable. Thank you for working with us to custom-design a table that fits the dimensions of our home, and for creating a hand-planed tabletop that looks great and will survive the wear and tear from our kids. Our Gary Weeks table will surely be one of our prized Texas heirlooms.

D. and L.J.
