Dear Gary,

No need to apologize. The chair is everything you said, and more.

My wife and I, and the baby, are all really enjoying the chair. It is very comfortable. Thank you so much.

Best regards,

I meant to email you last night . . . The rocker arrived, and the box was damaged BUT the rocker is in perfect condition so everything is great. We love the rocker . . . I didn't realize how big it was (a good thing – I'm 6'1" and it fits me perfectly). It's very good looking and obviously well-designed . . . it almost rocks by itself! I'm glad there are still craftsmen like you who create genuine quality furniture.

Thank you,

Dear Gary,

I am the very fortunate recipient of your incredible rocking chair. I must thank you for a number of reasons.

Firstly, as a taller mom-to-be I cannot thank you enough for the pitch perfect proportions presented through your chair. I cannot ever remember my back position feeling better as the lumbar support is exactly where it should be. Secondly, that this was the gift chosen by my beloved partner suggests he understands me completely and we shall have a lifetime of memories with this chair as the backdrop.

. . . Everytime I sit in your chair I am reminded of the good times; the beauty, the excitement and the integrity that good design can bring to ones existence. That there are fewer of you able to do this only makes you more special.

In a David vs. Goliath world, I congratulate you and your family on your beautiful work and the impressive feat of succeeding both in business and in art.

Best wishes and continued success!

Hi Gary — I show off my dining chairs at every chance. They are stunning. Prized possessions.

Thank you!

Dear Gary,

Thank you for your email and nice comment. The mountain has been a sacred place for more than 1000 years as is Mt. Fuji. Nowadays, however, people visit these places just for fun.

The rocking chair arrived safely this morning. The chair is more than I expected. First of all, it fits my body so well. The artistic curvature, especially the back, impressed me a lot. Now I can rock in this chair at night and enjoy a special liqueur made by me with wild blueberries, which I picked at the top of Hakusan (the white mountain) just before snowfall. I witnessed that bears were fond of these blueberries, and ate huge amount just before hibernation.

P.S., Your work is marvelous and survives ages. In contrast, although there are so many scientists, the majority of their work are forgotten as soon as they report their research.

Just wanted to let you know that we got the rocker in great condition and although struggling to figure out where to fit it in our tiny house are pleased as punch! Still no baby, so it made it here in plenty of time :)

They received the chair and are enjoying it more than they expected. I had the pleasure of seeing it on Saturday and have to admit that the craftsmanship is superb!! The chair will complement the back porch of their soon to be built home quite perfectly. After completion of the house, a second rocker may be in order . . . I'll keep you posted. Again, thank you for such a unique and extraordinary piece of art.

We have a newborn baby at home, and my wife reports that the rocker is PERFECT for nursing, the best chair we have. A selling point, perhaps?

We did indeed receive the rocker last night.

It is indeed a work of art.

My wife was very pleased with it and it fits her great.

We look forward to many good hours in it with the new baby.

Thank you for your prompt email communication and professionalism.
