Dear Gary:

As I was having a glass of wine last night, and sitting in the Weeks chair, I thought again what a terrific piece of art that thing is. It's functional, stylish and even by itself – it adds something to the room. And also – thanks for the prompt delivery.

Who knows??? maybe I'll order another sometime in the future.

all the best

Gary Thanks so much. I really can't tell you how much I love the rocker. It is really helping my back with the gentle movement, and it's fun!!! God bless you and your family and I am so happy to know you. Please keep in touch.

Lovely Number 1326 has arrived. For some odd reason the anticipation peaked when my screwdriver and your screws resisted each other, but with patience I revealed our treasure chair. It is perfect. As I was removing the bubblewrap, my son and two friends came home. They laughed at me. I guess I looked pretty thrilled. We tested it for comfort and have all declared it wonderful. Each of us slid into the seat with a sigh and from 110 lbs/5'6" to 180 lbs/6', all of us felt the chair was made for us. C. remarked that it isn't only a chair, but a work of art and L. gazed at the figure and traced it with her fingers, noting all the swirls and silky, seamless lines.

If I haven't sufficiently conveyed it, I am delighted and the next generation promises to rock on his porch when he is an old curmudgeon.

Best regards and gratitude to all involved in # 1326's creation.

PS: I must secretly admit that spending all that money (huge for me), sight unseen, no word-of-mouth recommendation — based solely on your good looking website, was a bit unnerving for me, but I decided to believe . . . and am glad I did. — S.

Dear Gary, Leslie and Company,

I wanted to let you know that your gorgeous rockers arrived here yesterday in perfect condition. The toughest part was deciding which one to keep and which to give to my mom. They are both beautiful, yet very different. I have already rocked the baby to sleep twice in the chairs. I only wish I'd had them sooner. S. really likes running her little hands over the arms of the chairs and looking closely at the patterns in the wood. She is a very detail oriented baby! (Must be her dad's influence as it sure isn¹t mine.) I am sure we will love them for generations to come. I keep telling S. that someday that chair will be hers.

Thank you again for your beautiful work. I would recommend your chairs to anyone.
N. and S. (and husband C. too)

PS: At 5'5", 6'2" and 27" we all fit comfortably in the chair.

Delivered in perfect condition. My wife loves it — she has been using it every day. I surprised her on her birthday so that she knew that it was coming.

Best regards,

I'm sorry I have been long in responding. We left town for a couple of weeks right after the rocker arrived, and I'm still catching up.

What can I say about the chair, it is everything we hoped for and more. When my wife and I rock our 18 month old little girl in it, she loves to rub her hand over the smooth soft finish. Now this may be a sleep delay tactic but I prefer to think that she appreciates the fine work.

Thanks again,
B. B.

Dear Gary-

We just received our gorgeous rocking chair delivered perfectly to Amsterdam this afternoon. My husband and I are really thrilled with it! Thank you so much for creating something so special for us as we expect our first child. It's a beautiful heirloom treasure which I am sure will be passed on to future generations!

(Also, thank you so much for your promptness in correspondence, your precise time table and impeccable packing and delivery.)

All the best,

Gary, unfortunately I have not seen or rocked in your rocker, but short I. and tall R. just think it is fabulous. They can't figure out how it fits both of them. That is okay, some secrets must remain! Thank you for sending a rocker for generations of our family. It has been a pleasure working with you.

The rocker has shown up and is even nicer than I imagined. Really beautiful. I haven't taken it out of the crate yet, as I need to transport to my daughter's apartment first, but it looks fine as is.

My wife is now commenting that she may like your rocker best — we have two other wood rockers including one I had made to her size (5' 1-3/4" but she says she is 5' 2"). Everyone knows that your walnut rocker is mine, and I can kick all out except my wife. I may need you to make one more soon, so I can get my rocker back.

Thanks again — the rocker is beautiful and you made the whole order/delivery process painless. Great work!
