Hey Gary:

Just wanted to let you know that my Christmas mahogany rocking chair is fantastic and I was quite surprised when it showed up at the house! I know you hear this all the time, but this is the most comfortable rocking chair I have ever sat on and the workmanship is outstanding. We will need some dining chairs in the future and yours will be at the top of our list. Also, I think that one of your side tables would be nice to have as I rock away . . . .

Thanks for a great chair and I hope you and yours have a very safe, happy and prosperous New Year.

Take care and best regards,

The rocker arrived an hour ago and I have placed it in our living room. I appreciate the way you matched the grain in the arms of the rocker and the smooth finish of the wood. I know I'll enjoy it in my lifetime and hopefully if will stay in the family and be used long after I'm gone.

Thank you and Merry Christmas,

A thing of beauty is a joy forever: Its loveliness increases; it will never Pass into nothingness; but still will keep A bower quiet for us, and a sleep Full of sweet dreams, and health and quiet breathing. Keats, Endymion Book I

Thank you Gary, and we wish you all a blessed Christmas. C.

Hi Gary

Your most amazing rocker just arrived and we are delighted. It is just remarkable how somebody can produce such perfection — don't think I have been this close to the concept before.

We are exhausted after a long day, and stayed up waiting on the customs clearance, the chair arriving at 10pm. We can't go to bed — can't stop running our hands over the grains and taking turns to sit in it.

Austin did a marvelous job with the inlay and the engraving — so rewarding. E. was speechless, still is. She is also blown away by it's magnificance and she just loves the Rimu inlay!!

I am genuinely humbled.

Thank you.

Kind regards

Delivery went without a hitch. No box punctures; hard to puncture THAT box! The rocker looks and feels great, and my daughter agrees there's a much smaller chance I'll say something stupid when sitting in it. I hope you prosper; what you do is important. Very best of the holiday season to you and yours.

I got the chair earlier today in a torrential downpour. Before taking it off the truck, I wrapped it in a tarp. I was very pleased to see how well it was wrapped and how well the container was made. Despite all of the rain and despite the box getting wet some, the chair was in perfect condition and not wet at all. It is a beautiful chair! I will let you know tomorrow how my wife likes it, as I will present it to her when we get home from work today.

The table did indeed finally arrive and we love it. It fits perfectly. I like it best with the leaf in — the length fills the dining room best that way. Makes me think I should get two more chairs but that may be a while. My bank account has to recover. :-) Thank you so much for your beautiful work.

Good Morning Austin,

The rocker arrived yesterday! WOW — thank you so much. The kids were speachless and just love it. Ash called Alex who is in Iraq to tell him about it — they both were so touched. Ashley says it is absolutely beautiful and extremely comfortable. When I go out in a few weeks for the birth, will take photos and send.

Thank you so much for extreme attention to detail and shipping the rocker so quickly.

Merry Christmas!

The rocking chair arrived this afternoon in perfect condition. I think it's even more beautiful than the cherry rocker we bought two years ago. The grain is exceptional and shows some iridescence. The chair will be the perfect compliment to our sleeping porch! I'm writing this e-mail from the rocker right now. I may not get up for awhile. Can't wait to see the dining room table!

Gratefully yours,
