We received the chair today. It looks great and my wife was pleasantly suprised. Thank You so much! I'm sure we will enjoy it for years to come.

Hello Gary, Austin and all:

Just wanted to let you know that the beautiful table and chairs just arrived in perfect condition. Here are a few pics to let you know where your work will be living. The light fixture is from Wimberley Glass, by the way. We were purchasing that when we first saw your studio. Our Weeks rocker is out on the patio (a little bright out there, now). We will check with you in the future to add a bar stool. Thanks again.

Dear Gary — the rocker arrived not long after we spoke and I was on the phone with the shipper. It is a gift for my wife from her children. She is thrilled by it, as am I. It would be a great addition to our house even if no one ever sat in it! Just to look at it or touch it brings a smile of pleasure. I'll give you an update on the joy of sitting in it once I gain some experience.

Thanks so much!

Dear Gary and Austin,

I unwrapped the chair first thing this morning and was absolutely stunned! I could not be more pleased with the craftsmanship, the design, and the comfort. The back support is just right, and everyone who has sat in it feels it must have been made for them alone. The wood is beautiful, and you captured the grain perfectly! I thank you both, and hope you will pass along my sincere thanks to everyone who contributed in creating my chair.

I am trained as an engineer and tend to favor function over form, much to the dismay of my daughters (ages 19 and 22), who are both talented artists and take the opposite view. When I first sat in the chair I was reminded of the quote from William Morris: "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." The Weeks rocker is a sublime combination of aesthetics and function that satisfies both conditions perfectly. I have already promised to buy each a Weeks rocker of their own when they establish their own households in a few years. (So don't go and retire any time soon, please . . .)

I am attaching a photo, and I'm sure you will agree that the rocker has found an absolutely ideal place to be treasured (and shown off!).

Thanks again,


P.S. Please let Bela know how pleased I was to find her beautiful drawing atop the carton this morning. I am sending a thank you to her in the mail on Monday . . .

Ps, we enjoyed the butterfly artwork from Bela.

Hello Gary.

The chair and stool were just delivered. My wife is very pleased and they look great in our nursery. Both the stool and chair are beautiful; you are a true craftsman. The wood stock is gorgeous and the finish immaculate. Thank you, Leslie and the rest of your team for your hard work and excellent customer service.

Time permitting, I will give you more thoughts after spending more time rocking.

Until then, take care.

We received the rocking chair and accessories on Wednesday and are very happy with them. We cannot wait to use them when the baby arrives! Thank you very much.

We have a quick question about care: do you advise against the use of paste wax (e.g. Butcher's) to protect the finish?

The rocker arrived yesterday morning and mother M. and baby B. love it. As I have said, it has been such a pleasure for me to give them something made to be beautiful and comfortable by someone I know.

Thanks —

How delightful of you to respond!

You may not remember, but I sent you an email months ago — before ordering the rocker — to ask if you could make the seat higher because of my bum knees. (You said you really couldn't.) Obviously, we ordered it anyhow. But I just wanted to tell you that the arms on the rocker are the perfect height to assist me and I've been able to get out of it with no problem!

And I'm having knee replacement surgery in January, so expect at least some of my recuperation may involve rocking!!
