Gary and Leslie,

I love my chair. Thank you for a fabulous piece of art. I will enjoy it for years, as well as my children and grandchildren to come. I can't decide whether to sit in it or look at it!

As ever,

Dear Gary:

You may recall our visit to your workshop on Saturday, July 1st. You will be pleased to know that after our visit to California to see some other handmade rocking chairs, there is no competition! Your rocking chairs win in terms of comfort and artistic quality — it helped that you pointed out your matching of grains, lamination, method of joining, etc. — as we might have overlooked these qualities otherwise.

Please accept this as our order for two of The Weeks Rockers in Cherry. Enclosed is our deposit check of $500, with the remainder payable when the rockers are near completion.

Yours truly,
R.K

Dear Mr. Weeks

We have been enjoying the rocker (#162/1995) purchased from you almost five years ago, and very much appreciate the comfort and beauty of the chair. But it is the excellent workmanship that makes it such a treasure to us!

We are wondering if make any other items. If so, would you please send us information and prices about them?

Thank you.

Dear Gary & Company:

I received the rocker last week and unpacked it as you recommended. It arrived in perfect shape.

The rocker is awesome! The craftsmanship and attention to detail is a special talent. I know that mesquite wood is a challenge to find and hard to work, but you have created an heirloom piece that my wife and I know will have a special inheritance. At present it is by the back door where it is used multiple times daily — it will have a special place in the office I am going to add to our home.

Debbie and I are looking forward to coming to your workshop one day.

Thank you!
