Hi Gary,

Just a short note to say “Thank You” for my office furniture.  It looks spectacular and it is a great work environment.  I have attached a few photos of the completed office.  The photos aren’t great quality as I just took them quickly on my iPhone.  If you would like better photos, please let me know and I will redo them.

To Jo/Susan/Dorothy,

We took delivery of our beautiful Dance table and chairs yesterday. It looks stunning in our dining room and we are thrilled to have it in our home. Now, of course, our other dining room furniture looks a bit old hat!…..You may remember that we were really keen on the re-sale freeform sideboard you had on the floor which, regrettably, had already been sold…At some time in the future we’d like to purchase a sideboard complementary to our Dance dining setting….We will keep our eye on your re-sale site but should you accept any sideboard for re-sale we’d appreciate a quick email. Thanks so much to all at JahRoc for your friendly and professional service.

Hi Gary

Dimitry and I spent a relaxed day in York yesterday; a much needed respite from our home open preparations!

We enjoyed meeting Susan who is perfect for her job because she so obviously loves it and her enthusiasm is infectious.
She took great pride and pleasure in showing us the pieces that were sold and waiting to be shipped.
The sheoak table which positively shimmers was stunning.
We had never considered sheoak or marri until we saw some of your pieces.

The piece de resistance was uncovering our black butt kitchen work bench!
I had been uncertain if we should have ordered the entire piece with straight edges but when we saw how the edge softened the effect and looked natural and not black and plastic like so many you see on the market we were really pleased.
Both of us were impressed with the workmanship and your selection of timber for the top wood is beautiful.
The size is perfect.
We will have a very special piece of WA timber and skilled workmanship to display with pride in our home on Vancouver Island.

Many thanks for taking the time and effort to produce something unique, functional, aesthetically pleasing and meaningful.

p.s. There was a sheoak desk and coffee table at the gallery that are tempting us…as well as the chairs.
We’ll talk it over asap and decide what to add.
We hope to get to Margaret River soon incase there is something there we should buy.

Thanks again, Gary!

Thank you for your follow up phone message on Saturday.

Yes, we finally received the bench on Friday and it is happily ensconced in our kitchen. It is all we hoped for with plenty of character in the timber and amazingly practical. The quality and standard of finish is first class.

Hopefully, one day soon (i.e when the drought breaks!) we will be able to afford other Jah Roc furniture.

Many thanks for your personal service to us, Natalie and attention to detail. We certainly appreciated it.

TripAdvisor – Art Purchase Helen Norton

I didn’t visit JahRoc on this occasion, however I did purchase a piece of art work from Wills Domain who were displaying on JahRoc’s behalf. The lady I spoke to who’s name from memory was Lara, at JahRoc, to process my payment was so friendly and an absolute pleasure to deal with.

I’ve been to JahRoc on numerous occasions over the years and the premises are immaculate, interesting and the staff very competent. They know exactly who and what they are displaying and are full of great knowledge.

I’d definitely recommend visitors to the south west call in and take a look.

TripAdvisor – Treat Yourself To This Gallery

There are so many different types of art displayed in this gallery it is hard for the eye to take it all in. Art ranges from local jewelry artists, to metal sculptures, and painted art. Every time I turned a corner I was delighted with another media. There were of course things that I did not care for, but even those were curious and fun to look at. The staff is not pushy, so you can meander at your leisure.

Audrey and Lorenz Schibli, Mt Peasant, Perth WA


We have just taken possession of our second piece of furniture from JAH-ROC and are absolutely thrilled and satisfied with our purchase.

We have followed JAH-ROC’s progress throughout the years after first discovering them at a furniture exhibition at Ascot and then on the York when they took over the Old York Flour Mill. York has always been a favourite haunt of ours and we have never missed a visit to the Flour Mill to delight in JAH-ROC’s latest designs as well as displays from other arts and craftsmen.

Being discerning purchasers of fine furniture, we found in JAH-ROC the quality and excellent workmanship we desired. We like especially JAH-ROC’s use of recycled wood and the added touch of forged ironwork which suits our home ideally.

Our first purchase in 1995 consisted of the Murchison Dining Table made of timber from the old Chittering Bridge and Bunbury Jetty complete with benches. We can entertain at least 14 people at one sitting!! Now, to complete our “rustic” look, we have installed a bar, again from recycled wood and the added touch of “mini-orb” panels, and finished off with ironwork matching the table.

As mentioned previously, we are very thrilled with our choice of JAH-ROC furniture as we have never been able to find anything to compare in Perth with the design and quality of workmanship we demand.

Thank you, JAH-ROC for an excellent product. Keep up the good work, fellas. We will watch with enthusiasm your progress and will not hesitate to refer you to our family and friends.

Mr Gary Bennett,

We doubt if you remember this rocking chair but we bought it from you in December 2015 (for my 65th birthday). When it was in your shop it was covered in black leather which you then recovered in red leather at our request.

At the time we lived in the Swan Valley, Perth where you personally delivered it.

Well 2 years on and we have now settled in rural France and the chair has pride of place in our lounge.

At the time you mentioned that some day you would like to visit the places where your furniture items are located, so please visit if you’re passing anytime!!

Cheers and thanks to you and all your staff for an amazing piece of unique, handmade and greatly loved furniture.

Ian and Sandra Spensley, Correze, France, December 2017

Gary Bennett’s reply:

Hi Ian and Sandra,
Of course we remember you!

Dave and I came to your home out at the Vines and you were getting packed up to fly off into the sunset. We were really stoked to get your email and photo’s. I love knowing where our pieces end up and will be even more stoked to visit you one day.

We have been snowboarding in Japan the last few years but Europe is on our wish list when we get a bit more time now that our kids are leaving home and getting set up on their own and school holidays will no longer hinder our travel plans! 

I hope you both have a fabulous Christmas and a great New Year :)

Best regards Gary and the team at JahRoc.

Hi Gary,

Great to hear you recall us, I guess you remember all your creations/works of art in wood and rightly so as they are all so individual.

Hope you enjoy your trips away and your new found freedom and you are both welcome anytime.

Thanks for all your help. We head off to Qld. early Dec. and take with us a nice chunk of Western Australia!! The chairs will have to come later, when I’ve saved some more pennies. I did speak to Cindy about freighting them across to Qld. So you may be hearing from me in the not too distant future. I’ll be in touch.

Hello Gary,

Excellent to hear from you!

We feel we are always in touch, as we enjoy seeing the progress you have made via your e-mail updates. We love the Vladamir Kagan style of that is reflected in many of your furniture designs. It is also obvious that JahRoc has made a commitment to the artisans of your area, as you expand your offerings – well done!

We speak of your enterprise often, when guests admire, or in some cases, compete for the comfort of the Roo Silhouette Rocker, which is in the living room of a wonderful fall weather/Holiday time log home we built in the Northern Catskill Mountains of New York State. From the rocker one can (in superb comfort) sit and enjoy a 75 mile pristine view of upstate New York’s mountainous beauty.

We are always proud to share the marvelous way you dealt with us when we first contacted you, including the music and essence of Australia’s West Coast which accompanied the Roo Silhouette on delivery to New York City in 2003. I would add to this the pride with which we have shared your sustainable approach to to creation of your furniture – re-purposing jetty lumber is admirable indeed!

As we are having the cedar shake exterior of our homes on Bainbridge Island, WA, cleaned, brightened and restored, we asked the workers to give the same attention to the Emu Bench which welcomes our visitors under the cedar pergola entryway to our home. This is another terrific JahRoc story which we enjoy sharing with our friends.

Please know that any time we visit the West Coast of Australia, you should look for us in any direction! we would love to visit JahRoc’s Gallery.

With kindest regards,

Dear Gary, Lara, David, Joanne and Mechelle,

Have just returned from spending the weekend at Margaret River……gorgeous as ever!!

Although we were unable to attend the gallery for the opening “Fish and Chips” on Saturday – Uncle’s 90th Birthday Celebration – we did enjoy the exhibition and wandering through on Friday afternoon, the 28th.

Thank you for continuing to send information re the exhibitions and invitations to various events at Jah Roc.
Although we are not always able to attend the openings, we often enjoy your beautiful gallery and magnificent art in general. It is at this time of the year that we are reminded how thrilled we were to buy our first piece of Jah Roc from the Royal Show, a very heavy, casual coffee table made from recycled timber from the Emu Brewery. Later when the factory was still at Innaloo we bought an early wine rack made from Busselton Jetty timber.
We loved attending the grand opening of the factory in the Old York Mill and the second celebration when the second story was restored.

All quite a while ago now but it has been lovely and interesting to watch the Company develop……Congratulations on your achievements.

Dear Lara, Gary, David and all the JahRoc Team,

Looking forward to all sitting around it and celebrating on Christmas day – as long as everyone uses their coasters and don’t spill anything!!!

We most certainly are enjoying it and feel very proud of this fantastic furniture.

It was just such a pleasure dealing with each and every one of you from the start to the finish.

Thank you for the four Certificates of Authenticity & Lifetime Guarantee which I will make sure are stored in a safe place.

Dear Gary

I have always aspired to collect Jah Roc furniture and my first purchases were small items, being the iconic magazine rack and bar stools.

I have recently been fortunate to expand my collection and have purchased several more items of furniture for my living room, bedroom and entry.

Jah Roc has built the furniture to my specification under your supervision and every piece displays master workmanship and they are something I am proud to own and show off. I cannot speak highly enough of your craftsmen and their ability to create fine furniture.

The timber you have used were from the wind fallen trees of Boyup Brook which have given the finished product a delightful light pink shaded jarrah with fabulous detail.

Every piece is individual and unique and whilst they are things to admire for generations to come, they are also used daily therefore forming a chronicle of my family’s daily lives.

Jah Roc furniture is also a sound financial investment and this combined with the increasing shortage of uniquely Western Australian jarrah makes me feel fortunate to be an owner …however there is always room for another piece!

Please feel free to discuss my enthusiasm for Jah Roc furniture with any of your prospective clients.

Good morning Gary,

Nice to hear from you again and yes, we are very much enjoying the new home. Fresh photos are attached to this e-mail.

Funny how quickly we have settled in and now that the garden has been landscaped it really is “our home”. We are justifiably (I think) very proud of the end result.

Your fine furniture has become a real focal point. It comes into view as soon as guests step down from the front entry hall and I only wish we had recorded some of the comments, ranging from wonderful, marvellous, stunning, essentially Australia, stylish to simply fabulous.

Perhaps the greatest compliment we could offer is to let you know that despite having had dinner guests every Saturday night since early February we are still to use the lounge suite in the dining room.

People simply love to sit at the table and enjoy the most comfortable chairs they have ever sat on at a dining table, their words, not mine. It is common to find us still at the table long after midnight.

We could not recommend you more highly for your professionalism and craftsmanship. You are entitled to be proud of you “works of art”.

If you have occasion where you would like to present your furniture to prospective customers we would be delighted to offer our home as “your showroom”.

Best wishes for the future to yourself and all at “JahRoc”.

Olwen and I were delighted to purchase the suite and I can assure you it looks an absolute treat in our dining room. You and all the team who worked on this project are to be commended for your generosity of spirit and for your excellence of workmanship.

I believe that the quality of product that you manufacture at York is a credit to both yourselves and also to Western Australia.

Please pass our personal thanks on to all who worked on this project.

Congratulations, again, for your efforts on behalf of Appealathon.

Very pretty place right next to a sweet lunch place called Swings. Nice pieces. Would have loved a few of them in my home. Gallery owner has a nice eye for art.

Every piece in this gallery is designed and made by a master craftsman. If you want to gaze on true quality pieces, take some time to wander through. If you want to shop, you need deep pockets. Enjoy!

Stunning One of a Kind Furniture & Art Gallery

This is more than a showplace for fine furniture, it is more an art gallery for exquisite design and superlative craftsmanship. Check out the upper floor and outside and up another flight of stairs for metal sculpture and paintings that will leave you wishing that your art budget could be infinitely expanded.

Hi Lara,

Great news – my glass platter was delivered safely today!

Thank you for organising the impregnable box packaging, it was so well packed it would have survived a Mars landing!

Please pass on the good news to Margaret Heenan and assure her I will treasure her beautiful art piece!

See you at the gallery next time I’m back at Margaret River!

Kind regards

Hello Mechelle and Jo,

I thought I’d write a quick note on behalf of both Lucy and I to thank you both and to let you know that the delivery of the Jazz Wine Rack all happened as arranged for this morning a few moments ago.

The re-polishing certainly looks good and we are very pleased this was possible. Our thanks to David.

It has been an absolute delight having such professional, competent and caring service throughout our wine rack purchase. Thank you both so very much. I will certainly be posting something to Trip Advisor shortly.

Once again thank you both.

Kind regards,

To the owners of JahRoc,

What an amazing collection you have.

An eclectic group of artists exhibited next to each other.

Outstanding pieces!

I would unquestionably buy from JahRoc Galleries in the future and will keep an eye on your website for new arrivals.

Thank goodness you arrange delivery overseas!

To the awesome team at JahRoc Galleries,

Phil and I bought our first piece of JahRoc Furniture (Kitchen Butcher block) back approx. 25 yrs ago which we still have now. We had a kitchen upgrade a few months ago and this is the only bit of the old kitchen we kept as it is to this day as good as new.

We always called into JahRoc when in York and now in Margaret River. At Easter time I fell in love with a Marri dining room table and chairs that are just so beautifully made. The workmanship is outstanding and quality is flawless.

We take pride in our workmanship at our Coolroom business and can clearly see the passion that you put into making your beautiful furniture pieces.

I cannot thank you enough for our beautiful setting which every time we sit at will admire with all our friends and loved ones.

Once again thanks for our outstanding table and chairs and we will always highly recommend you to our friends, families and business acquaintances.

Nearly forgot – love the JahRoc stamp – it would look awesome on top of the table.

Best Regards

Dear Gary and David

We installed the boardroom table you made us last week in time for the big meeting we had with some Government Officials.

The table was then and has been since, the centre of attraction with everybody that sees it having to make some form of positive comment.

You have a great thing going there at Jah Roc and we, at Image, are proud to own one of your works of art and you can rest assured we will be showing it off to a wide variety of people that we get through our doors from all over the world.

Please keep this fax on file and offer it as a reference for anyone considering going your way and tell them not to hesitate to call me if they need further clarification.

There is always a “coldy” in the fridge if either of you want to drop in and see how well it fits into the overall look of the boardroom.

Thanks very much.

Hello Jo, Lara and Michelle,

I just wanted to thank you all for my beautiful new David Bromley paintings. So in love!
They arrived safely and are giving us all joy each day. Just gorgeous.

I was a bit terrified that I had purchased artwork just from viewing on website! Normally it is something I view and fall in love with or get that special connection with so I was a bit nervous.

Your suggestions were perfect and in actual fact I think I love Fence Kids more than the nude I originally chose. It looks so perfect in Lucy’s room.
Thank you for advising so well.

I look forward to visiting the gallery when I am down in June.

Hi Lara

The Cafe Bar Stools are wonderful, will get you a couple of pics over the weekend in the kitchen, just have to clear the benchtop…

Really pleased with them, works of art.

We have loved JahRoc work for years, and the York Mill was always somewhere to take overseas family for a day trip when they came to Perth.

Hello JahRoc Furniture Team,

Thank you for the certificate of authenticity and guarantee received today.

We are delighted with our six filigree dining chairs, which have been so beautifully made.  The colour of the leather suits us perfectly.  We enjoy showing them off to our family and visitors and they have been much admired.

We bought them for our 60th wedding anniversary (instead of diamonds) so it is convenient to have the certificate to pass on to our heirs for information, even though it lasts for only our remaining lifetime!

Thank you, also, for your advice on how to care for them.  It was most useful.

Kind regards

Hi Joanne,


Our snazzy new jarrah Nara dining table delights us. Such is its beauty, you find yourself caressing it with a smile on your dial. (We also eat off it.)

No doubt it was our table that inspired Keats to write ‘a thing of beauty is a joy forever.’ Its aesthetic beauty combines with function as an everyday object – minimalist nirvana!

Cool, exclaimed our daughter.

Its obvious quality & dictionary exquisite craftsmanship make for good value, & that’s saying something because I work as an accountant & even I think it sports exceptional value.

If you’re into gorgeous handcrafted furniture at a price that won’t break the bank, I sincerely recommend Jahroc.


Happy Camper

Thanks again for your fine service, JahRoc book & bottle of wine!

Warm wishes.
Andrew, Singapore, August 2018

Hi Andrew,
Thank you so much for your kind words and photo. I really love seeing where our creations end up and I don’t think there could be a nicer home than yours for this one!
Whilst yours was a challenging commission to design and create, I have to say, I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.
Certainly we only exist because our customers have enough faith in our work to invest in it and we really appreciate you and Bonnie as JahRoc customers.
Still hoping to get to Singapore for another exhibition one day and we will look forward to catching up when we do.
Thanks again.
Best regards Gary and Lara, August 2018

Director Buller Wines Rutherglen

A very interesting discovery to come across JahRoc Galleries. We wandered in just because we had been having a drink next door. Thought a browse thru in a few mins would be the sum of it but no, we left an hour and a half later the new owners of 2 pieces of artwork and ruing that our schedule didn’t allow us more time. The furniture on display is magnificent, we would love to own some and in the artwork there is something for everyone. I absolutely recommend it to anyone visiting the region.
