I just had to drop you this note to thank you for the fine product you have in the Westport chairs. As soon as we unpacked the first chair, my son Mark, who is a stickler for specifications, said, "by golly those legs are a full 2 inches and the arms and seat boards are a full inch" He then lifted the seat assembly and just grinned. He knew he had a quality chair.
I did all the assembly and finishing, and it was a pleasure to work with your chairs. After restoring this old house that we live in and working with the stuff that was built almost 100 years ago and seeing the care and craftsmanship that went into it, I had a special interest in your chairs. I couldn't help but notice some of the little things, like softening the sharp edges, the galvanized hardware, the simplicity of design, that made the assembly so easy, and the selection of a hardwood that will certainly add to the life of the chairs.
I have enclosed a couple photos with the chairs on the front porch. Once again, thank you for a fine product (they're hard to find these days). By the way, I got so carried away talking about the quality of the chairs that I forgot another very important feature. They are very, very comfortable.

ps: I see by the clock it's about time to take an afternoon nap. I'll just sit on the front porch on my new chair, close my eyes, and see what happens.
