Softest thing I ever sat in, to be so hard.

Gary —

Our rocker arrived yesterday in perfect condition. As soon as it was out of the box my three year old asked to be rocked. The chair is more beautiful than expected and all that was promised about comfort is true. I enjoyed an evening rocking while my three other children had a glorious time with the giant box it came in. Thanks again — it is a pleasure to own something so nice.

We received the chairs two days ago.

They are fine pieces of work. The design, meticulous craftsmanship and the walnut you used are first rate. We have now sat in our own chairs for a couple of hours and found them to be very comfortable, although we knew they would be since we had a trial chair a few months ago.

I have not seen it yet but my kids raved about it. Thank you for great customer service. I have already recommended it to several people.

Its all here safe and sound. It looks like it has been there forever. The table top is remarkable. The time taken to lay out the boards in a way that balances the figures is obvious, and very much appreciated. I looked at all of the seats, they are all very nicely matched too. I'll send some pictures with comments in a few days. I’m amazed at the correspondence between the figures on the seats and human sitting anatomy.

The fellows who delivered the furniture did a really great job getting it in. They did finally take off the top but only after sizing up the door situation themselves. It was a 1/2 inch socket and well as you would expect, that was the only one missing from my set. A quick trip to the hardware store solved that.

Thanks so much
Merry Christmas to you and yours

First, if I were to inform you that the rocker arrived but was a debacle of kindling with really nothing left to return, would you send me a new one with no questions asked? If that be the case, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Disregard the following.

We received the rocker in excellent shape on the 10th of December. I placed it in our living room and four days later my beloved discovered it — finally! That is less a comment on her powers of observation and more of a comment that our lives have been a bit hectic. I now find her sitting in it, rocking, with what I can only describe as a slightly goofy grin on her face. I believe that she likes it.

I must tell you that it is rare in my experience to find excellent artistic ability combined with superb craftsmanship and we couldn't be more pleased with the rocker, in spite of the fact that it was made with firewood. Thank you. It will be an heirloom to be passed on to the next generation.

Happy Holidays. I look forward to hearing from you. And if the first paragraph applies, please disregard the rest of this missive.

Yes, the chair arrived safe & sound. I was really impressed with the crating. It is absolutely beautiful, we love it.

My rocking chair came today and I am writing to say how handsome it is. I had asked Gary to pick out one with as much grain as possible, and the one that I got looked even better than I had hoped for.

Happy holidays for all of you,

Hello Mr Weeks and Company,

I just wanted to let you know that we got the chair and it's beautiful.

My wife hasn't seen your website, but her comments echo what others have already said:

"It's beautiful"
"A work of art"
"Looks like it belongs in a museum"

She especially made me smile when she sat in the chair and said, "It fits me so nice, is this made for short people?"

It felt great to give this to her from the whole family. Thanks for your quick, professional, and beautiful work!

Best Regards,

Santa Barbara, California
