Hi Gary,

My parents gave me the Weeks Rocker in pecan in 1995 to celebrate the birth of our first child.  Many hours have been spent in that chair reading and dozing a little too!  I believe my parents  (who live in Fort Worth) came upon your rockers at a bed and breakfast somewhere near Austin — and hunted you down to place the order.

That rocking chair has moved from Tennesee to Virginia to Florida to Washington State to North Carolina and now resides in Colorado!  It has truly traveled coast to coast rocking kids of all ages!

We were thrilled to find you on the Internet — still making the same rocker!  We wouldn't change a thing! It is our pleasure to gift one to our daughter, Brittany and her husband to celebrate the same event!

Thank you for your commitment to craftmanship — it is well worth the effort!

My walnut rocking chair has been delivered and I am sitting in it as I type this.  I love how the back slats conform to my old back and I enjoy rocking away.  The workmanship is outstanding.  Haven't found one rough spot on it.  My husband, a very critical furniture person, cannot find anything negative to say about it.  He loves the walnut as do I.  I do believe this is now a family heirloom.  My husband thinks he might want one but he has a little difficulty standing up from it.  He has had knee surgery recently, so I think that might be the problem.  My only question now, do I need to keep it oiled down or polished?  Even the delivery man was oohing and aahing over it as he helped me take it out of the packing.

We are really enjoying the rocker.  It's a work of art made by true artists.  We are happy to support a local company like yours.

The walnut rocker is every thing we expected to be and sure to become a family heirloom for my son and his family, just like the one for my daughters family.

We are thankful that craftsmen and women like your company's make such high quality functional works of art.  Our two walnut rockers, a small end table, and a small foot stool from your company are pieces of furniture we cherish and will use with pleasure.  They will ultimately be family heirlooms to pass on to our sons' families.

Your employee, Autumn, who delivered the rocker a few weeks ago, is one dedicated employee to have driven from Wimberly to Kingwood and back to very carefully deliver our second rocker.  Thank her for so carefully getting the chair to us.

Best Regards,

Dear Gary ~

I am thrilled with both rocker and footstool.  My friend K.M., who introduced me to your wonderful rocker, wished me many decades of rocking . . . my plans exactly!  Thank you to you and your amazing group of artists!

Hi Gary,

Each of my two daughters has one of your rockers and loves it.  Unfortunately, I only have two. ;)  I do have a son so there is hope for yet another wedding gift.

My husband of 36 years and the love of my life just passed away.  The kids and I are all together this week. Within one hour of our getting all together your loved rockers were part of our conversation.  Perhaps one day I will have to buy one for myself.  (I was secretly hoping to win one.  Lol!)

Thank you.

Gary, hi.  This message is a bit delayed.  Yes, we did receive the rocking chair.  It arrived in good condition.  It looks great in our home and it is a comfortable to both my wife and I.  The few people we have shown it to so far also have been impressed by its form — It really is a great looking chair.  We're happy with our purchase and excited that we didn't have to wait 3 months to get it  (though we're not sure why the folks down in So. Cal. passed on it).

Next time we're down in Austin maybe we'll work out a way to come by and see your shop.  I'd be excited to see it.  Will check in on the website from time to time to see if you post anything new from time to time and to see how you update the site in the near future as you mentioned wanting to pursue when we talked a few weeks back.

Thank you.

Thank you for your email.  I purchased these rockers to give to two men who have worked for my company for over 30 years.  They were not Rolex guys.  I had some custom boots made for them and we gave them these rocking chairs.  I wanted something unique.  Your rockers were perfect.  Thank you.

I must send you a picture of some of the grandchildren sitting in the rocker.  These beautiful art pieces brought great joy and will be cherished for many years to come.  We so enjoyed sitting in our rockers in front of the fireplace during those cold days, and we probably will enjoy them again tonight.  It is such a pleasure doing business with you.  You are a true delight.  Also, Autumn has helped us out a lot as well. Thank you for being on this earth and sharing your beauty with us.
