Brodie Neill used over three kilometers of veneer from a flooded forest in Tasmania to make the top of ReCoil, an oval dining table.

The designer used timber salvaged by a company that specializes in harvesting timber underwater, to create the ReCoil table and a number of other items of furniture.

A section of virgin forest was flooded during the creation of a hydroelectric scheme in the 1980s, resulting in Lake Pieman, which submerged the trees beneath the surface.

The table is made of veneers of huon pine, eucalyptus, Tasmanian oak, celery top pine, sassafras, myrtle, and blackwood, which are all native to Pieman River valley.
