Having just built a lovely holiday home in country Victoria, we needed a very special table to compliment our beautiful surroundings and accommodate our large group of family and friends. Our home has gorgeous views of the High Country, so recycled timber sits beautifully in our environment. Several years ago we came across Neel Dey's beautiful recycled timber furniture and there was, for us, no other choice. Jim helped us select a beautiful strong and elegant design that would suit our home, meet our requirements, and even managed to incorporate the name of our property. This was really special as it's the name of Fergus' family farm in Kenya. Delivery 2.5 hours out of Melbourne was also arranged with ease. We look forward to our first dinner party at our new table which will become a family heirloom, hosting many sumptuous, fun filled feasts. Thanks Jim, and all the staff at Neel Dey Furniture, it has been a pleasure working with you.
What our customers are saying about us.
Thank you for your amazing table that has become a beautiful feature in my home. I am so excited and I can't wait to have my first meal on the table surrounded by good wine, food, family & friends. There are lots of fond memories to create and be had. Your team's exemplary craftsmanship and customer service has been out standing.
Sharyn and I picked up the cabinet yesterday, and we're delighted with it! Thanks so much for tolerating my changes to the initial design - it really paid off
Many thanks to Jim and all the master craftsmen at Neel Dey Furniture for our beautiful dining table and for realising our coffee table design, it's just as we imagined. Both the tables are drawing lots of compliments! The ease of communication, craftsmanship and seamless delivery has made working with you a pleasure. We're will be back for other pieces in the future!

I just wanted you to know that I love the table I have just bought from you. It is sitting in our dining room, looking like it belongs here, like it was always meant to be here. I have candles burning that are reflecting in the lovely surface you have made. I’m drinking herbal tea from a 200 year old Chinese porcelain cup and it all looks like it is part of the same cycle of craftsmanship. Thank you for making my table. I will treasure it. I hope you go on making beautiful furniture for Australian people for many years to come.
Jim and the team have made me the world's most beautiful table, complete with a very special inlay (West Australians will know the dingo well ;) They also helped me with a lend table for a big event I had while I was waiting for mine to be built. This is such a special piece and was absolutely worth the investment: no doubt it will be our family table wherever we end up from here :)
I searched on the internet for months trying to find the perfect recycled hardwood timber dining table. I finally settled on Neel Day as they were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. I based my table on one that they had made before for someone but added my own touches. Another concern i had was the fact they were in Victoria and i was up in the hunter valley in nsw, they assured me that they would use one of their trusted removalists and they would take extra care of my table which they certainly did and the cost was very reasonable. My table arrived yesterday and to say i was happy is an understatement. It is better than i even imagined. The quality, craftsmanship and finish is outstanding. I cannot recommend this company highly enough and will definitely be telling all my friends about Vinko and Jim.
We have just had a dining table and bench seat made and delivered. The entire process from being welcomed in the store to delivery was what a great customer experience should be about! Very human and the quality of our furniture is amazing. Can't recommend this brand enough.

Table and chairs delivered, magnificent product, thank you and the team so much for not only the table and chairs but your friendly and professional service.
Hi Vinko, Iramoo Community Centre would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the beautiful furniture you installed and created for our community centre. Your team was professional, efficient and catered 100% to our needs. Within a few days everyone was talking about our tables and they were a real focal point to our centre. We admire our tables on a daily basis and are so grateful to your team for giving our kitchen area a wow factor! We will have many celebrations and events in this area with our tables being the highlight to this space.

Dear Jim, Vinko and all of the team. Just a quick thank you to the whole team for designing, making and delivering a beautiful dining table to us today. It's very beautifully crafted and also looks like it will withstand many dinners with young children and teenagers. We finished our renovation about four years ago and have waited a long time to find the right workshop to manufacture our special table. Today we finally moved the old table out and put the new one in its place. It's perfect! It has been a pleasure working with you and thanks for your patience and understanding dealing with our questions and requests. We highly recommend you to anyone searching for that special piece of unique hand crafted furniture for their home.
This is not a table... this is piece of art. There is nothing ordinary about it. A constant conversation piece in our dining area which happily fits a large group of 12 friends and family. We could not be happier, Neel. When you find something you love, like our table, you cannot buy mainstream ever again
Jacqui & Lee
To the great guys in the workshop, Just wanted to quickly thank you for our beautiful pieces that have bought our holiday house to life. We are overwhelmed by how beautiful our recycled timber dining table, coffee table and this bed looks in our new beach house! Can't thank you enough All the best, Tina and Vince
Dear Neel, this is extremely belated but we just wanted to thank you so much for our special recycled timber table. We just love it - your work is just beautiful. Love Rachel and Dan
Rachel and Dan
We just wanted to tell you again how much we love the recycled timber bed you made for us. It is exactly what we were after and we often find ourselves standing in our bedroom admiring it and talking about what an amazing piece of furniture it is.We had a bit of a house warming a few days after it was delivered and it was the envy of all our friends (so much so that I think Katie came down to your work shop recently to talk about having something made).Having the bed made from recycled stringybark from the roof of the old Channel 9 studio on Bendigo Street, Richmond is also really special for us and makes us feel like we sleep in a little piece of Melbourne's history every night. Very cool!You were also a pleasure to deal with, as was your assistant. For anyone who is tearing their hair out trying to find the perfect pre-made bed, we'd definitely recommend they 'have it made'....by you!I've attached some more photos that you can hopefully use to show off your exceptional craftsmanship. Thanks again,
Sarah & Guy
Thank you Neel Dey! I feel very blessed to have this beautiful recycled timber table in our house! The boys that delivered it did a fantastic job. I am sure this table will see many a family dinner, birthday's, Christmas' over the coming decades.
Vinko and Tom,Thank you both for creating our beautiful recycled timber dining and coffee tables, which have quickly become cherished parts of our new home. The passion that you showed and the time that you shared with us in translating our thoughts into real objects are reflected in the workmanship of the final products. We would definitely love to come back and speak with you about another one or two pieces in 2013. Kind regards,
Rui and Faranaz
Hi Neel, I really can't thank you enough for the wonderful table/workbench you've crafted for our office. We love looking at it and using it! Thanks also for making the visit to our place to review the space where the table would sit - you were spot-on about the dark woods working well against the light wood floor boards, and the caster wheels are an added touch of function for which I'll be forever grateful! I'm already thinking about the next piece of furniture we might be able to commission from your workshop! Thanks again.
When you suggested a mixed species table, we thought "Why not?". We are so glad we did as we love the table, as do all who've seen it. At times it is treated like a functional sculpture, people want to run their hands over it, feel the saw marks, identify the timber and talk about the possible origins. Complimented by Sara Paxton's painting "Three Cows", the table not only lifts our dining area to gallery status but is extremely functional and the centrepiece for all of our social gatherings. A Coffee table will be next and we can't wait to see what you'll come up with. Regards,
Hi team, Thanks for creating our gorgeous recycled timber bench tops. They are the centrepiece of our recent kitchen make-over and we totally love them. Rarely a day goes by that one of us doesn’t still openly admire them and they’re the envy of all our friends too!The perfect addition to a 1920’s CBD warehouse conversion, they sit perfectly within the space and look like they have been there forever. Exactly what we visualized when we came to you with our request.Who would have thought that recycled old Messmate floorboards could become such a beautiful focal point. The wood grain Laminex benches of old are a distant memory now... :) I have included a before and after shot, so you can see exactly what a difference they have made. Thanks again, for a job extremely well done (...and let's never speak of wood grain Laminex again!) Cheers.

Over the last 7 or 8 years Neel Dey has built numerous pieces of recycled timber furniture for us, including a dining table, bench seat, coffee table, office board room table, and TV cabinet. Neel’s work is a nice combination of rustic and modern, and suits well all rooms, and sits perfectly alongside furnishings of all styles. Neel is easy to work with, reliable, and offers great value for money for what is a top- notch bullet-proof quality product, regardless of the item in question. He takes care to understand your needs and custom-build something closely in keeping with them, and all in all comes highly recommended..
Chris & Hannah Crook
Hi Neel,Thank you so much for the hard work you and your team put into the recycled timber table. It's an amazing piece that represents our personality and is like no other table anywhere! We're so happy with it and loved collaborating with you to create something truly unique and creative.
Naomi & Steph
Hi Neel, Thank you for the awesome table. It is the centrepiece of our household and we love the look and feel of the table - fits with our warehouse apartment perfectly! We have already had many memorable dinners on it - your craftsmanship is very much appreciated and celebrated in our household. All the best,
Lawrence & Tanya
Neel made this beautiful dining room table for us and we absolutely love it. Neel took the time with us right from the moment we walked into his warehouse to really understand what we wanted and how he could help. We are looking forward to having this table in our home for decades to come!
Katie & Mike
Table and chairs delivered, magnificent product. Thank you and the team so much for not only the table and chairs but your friendly and professional service.
Thanks to all at Neel Dey Furniture for our new cabinet now ensconced in our study. Following on from our much loved dining table, it is our second and equally admired piece. Apart from the excellent quality and look, it is a good feeling from a sustainability and local community perspective to be able to buy furniture made in your own neighbourhood
