Thanks, Gary. I enjoy this chair and footstool more every day. What a simple, well-made pleasure!

My mom was beyond thrilled with the beautiful walnut rocker! The rocker sits proudly in the library by the fireplace-just like when she was growing up. Many years of comfort and gentle to and fro await her. Thank you for making her day extra special for us with something handcrafted with love.

Dave received the rocker on Tuesday and is very happy with it. It is a perfect fit for the room.
Thanks for your excellent craftsmanship; it's hard to believe that it's been over twenty years since we visited your shop in Texas.

Dear Gary, Austin, and Autumn,
The three pieces arrived today, carefully carried into the space by Plycon’s delivery folk. No damage of any sort, just a little tape residue here and there which comes off with a microfiber cloth.
And the pieces are beautiful. The photos on the web site made me confident, as did the explanations of how the designs came to be and were executed, but pictures just can’t capture what you have made for us. We’re particularly struck by the quiet elegance, the subtle detail, the way that all the furniture somehow combines a sort of humility and practicality with sheer beauty. And of course the craftsmanship is superb.
We’ve looked at lots of rockers over the years (Portland is that kind of town), but never found anything that seemed right, shaped to the body, friendly to the eye, confident in its own place in the world but not trying to make a statement. And the desk and accompanying chair are worthy kin.
We feel very lucky to have found your work, and are grateful to all who have put their hands to this project.

Our beautiful cherry rocker just arrived Monday morning. I did not get an advance call for 4 hour window so I'm very glad I was home when the driver called to say he would be here in an hour! It was actually perfect timing since the sun is shining right now in Annapolis. We are in a period of expected 10 days of rain so I have been worrying about a possible delivery in a downpour.
Our grandchild was "due" on the 21st so we've been wondering which would come first, the baby or the rocker . You won!
Thank you for being so kind. We look forward to many hours of cuddling our first grandchild in the wonderful rocker. I love handmade things — I'm a pottery student — so appreciate all the attention to details in your work.

Thank you for your note. I just told our daughter about the chair and sent her a photo. I also suggested she watch the video on your website. Your thoughtful design and craftsmanship will definitely be appreciated at our house!
Bet you are having a wonderful time with your grandson. Fun age. Hope he lives close enough for you to see him often.
We have three daughters. This is the first grandchild, but we hope there will be more to come.
On a different note, E and I both have back issues. The chair is very comfortable for me and I have practiced rocking in it several times today. I can't wait for E to get home from work so he can try it too.
Appreciate your kindness every step of the way with our rocker.

Thank you so much for your thoughtful note. We also have been traveling, hence the rather late acknowledgement of how thrilled we are with our new rocker. It is so beautiful, a real work of art. And more important it is equally comfortable for myself (5'2") and my husband (6'1"). Would not have believed that to be possible. We are so happy with our chair, thanks again.

Hello Gary and Company. Our Walnut Rocker arrived in fine order on Friday in Michigan. It was well packed and there weren't any marks on the box. I had forgotten how beautiful, rich and shiny it was 17 years ago when I bought it. Y'all did a fabulous job refinishing it!! Unfortunately, once we put it in our living room we realized that it was just too nice for our renters to use. Like I've always said, y'all are artists and not just wood workers. I could not allow such a beautiful work or art to be scratched, or god forbid to have someone sit on it with a wet bathing suit. That just won't do! So it shall sit in our locked owners closet, wrapped like a present until we return for a month in July/Aug so only we will be the ones to marvel and enjoy it.
Many thanks for an exceptional job done by all at Gary Weeks and Company. Always remember that you create beauty that enriches other peoples lives!
M.S & T.S.
