Dear Gary

T. and S. received the rocker yesterday. It arrived in great shape and they absolutely love it. I can't wait to see it myself. Thanks for the great service. I'm sure the family will enjoy the rocker for years to come.

It arrived without a blemish. M. and K. were absolutely thrilled! The baby is due any day now and M.'s Mom is packed with a plane ticket in her purse. Thanks for the great design and workmanship. The plaque was also a surprise and they immediately realized they had a family heirloom, and a most useful one at that. The rocker will be put to a most valuable service very soon. I will be in Phoenix for Christmas and will get to see it and put it to use with the new grandson. What a thrill!

Thanks for the great job you and all your craftsmen and caring employees are doing. They clearly enjoy their work. It shows.

Rocker came through in great shape. I'm impressed with the workmanship. I talked one of my friends (M.R.) into ordering one also. I think his will be delivered Monday 2 Oct. Looking forward to hearing what his wife says about it.

Hi Gary,

The Rocker just arrived, and we did a very thorough inspection right off the truck. It was in perfect condition.

I called your number right after I'd finished drooling over it . . . it is absolutely the most beautiful piece of furniture I own. It's amazingly comfortable, and the workmanship, the wood-piece symmetry you used, and every detail are just so perfect! You want a reference or testimonial, YOU GOT IT!

My sincere Thanks for building me something I will surely enjoy, and pass down from generation to generation.

Thanks again, Gary. The piece is, as always, a celebration of material and mind, and the irresistible momentum of an artist's heart.

Gary, the rocker is fabulous! Beautiful work, excellent grain work, great size — my wife had a feeling about you all — it's great that real skill and pride in such still lives! . . . I think I will be thanking you for many years to come — indebted J.

Dear Gary,

As you are aware, I was in for a wonderful surprise upon my return to my home in Winnipeg. The container was in the garage and it immediately tweaked my curiosity. When Stewart told me it was an anniversary gift I decided to open it a bit later. This allowed some time for a guessing game. Needless to say, I could not figure it out.

What a beautiful rocker. It is a work of art. I wanted to put it on a pedestal so everyone would be able to admire the beauty of the wood but the rocker's form invites me to sit and relax.

I most certainly appreciate your talents as a craftsman. Thank you.

The rocker arrived on time without damage of any kind due it's being very well packed and crated by your staff. The chair is gorgeous — its flowing lines, the way the figure in the wood has been matched, details like the slight bevel in the arms where a person's forearms would naturally rest, and the way it's been oiled are a wonderful example of craftsmanship — is one of the most treasured things in our home. I also want to express my thanks for the regular and ongoing correspondence during the interval from order to delivery. It's been a pleasure to deal with you.
