Just wanted to let you know that the chair arrived, and it's been great from the start! I'd say my initial impression upon unboxing it is that the woodworking and general quality were even more impressive than I expected. It's hard to impress that upon people over the internet, but I'm glad I made the decision to try it out in person. There truly is no substitute for quality Vermont-made wood furniture, and the seat is especially striking.
The packaging/boxing was also a job well done, which I appreciate you taking the care with.
I've enjoyed sitting on it, both in the stationary (i.e. with chair locks inserted) and active modes. I found it pretty natural to pick up the active sitting posture, and it's actually way easier to maintain my balance than I expected. I would also say that the stationary mode itself is a bonus that I wasn't expecting. Sometimes it feels good to be able to roll around my positioning and stretch out my core muscles using the seat as resistance (which isn't possible in the same way while it moves with you in the active mode). The chair feels sturdy at all times!
