Wow. WOW, WOW, WOW ! ! ! I returned from a meeting and just saw the final, installed table. It is fantastic. Even better than I had imagined in my mind. You are geniuses. You must come and visit it in its new home ---- and the invitation is open for all the fellows who worked on it. You will agree that it is the crowning glory of our new space.
Thank you for your extraordinary performance on this project. You were gracious and thoughtful throughout --- and your expertise diplomatically solved all of our naive questions and ideas. It was fun to work with you and we all feel that we have new friends in the three of you and your craftsmen, too.
We are now the proud owners of the best table in Omaha. We will take good care of it and hope that you will be proud to use it as a sample of your work for other clients.
Merry, merry Christmas to all of you ...and continued excellence in the new year. We wish all of you the very best and good health to enjoy it in the year ahead.

Dan really understood what I wanted in my office for my new work station. I work a lot. I wanted a big girl desk. Oh, I got one! First, the quality of the workstation could not be gotten in any retail store. No way. It was crafted for only me. His team created it and installed it. It is exactly what I had in mind. It is the best purchase I have made in a long time. Now, I am much more comfortable in my office. My environment really affects my attitude, this workstation changed my attitude!

Dear Dan and Dennis,
When I was looking to redecorate my living room I wanted to have some lasting pieces that could be passed onto the next generation. I could have gone to some very nice brand name places and I have shopped in many of them and been pleased. This time I wanted something a little more unique. My relationship with Zongkers Custom Furniture and Cabinetry came out of a chance meeting with Dan Zongkers at a bar! Well, a bar Zongkers had built. I was impressed. Becoming fast friends with Dan, Dennis and the rest of the crew I knew I wanted a one-of-a-kind piece. Dan came out to the house, discussed with me what I wanted, provided designs and gave me a quote.
Dennis drew up the engineering drawings, husband was impressed and we were off and running. You have to visit their shop and meet the crew to appreciate the craftsmanship. From start to finish I was involved in the process. I now have this amazing TV/curio cabinet that disguises that massive TV that can take over a room. I push the remote, down it goes and I have this gorgeous piece of furniture that warms up the entire space. I couldn't be happier � the hub likes it too! We even added an additional matching end table to house all of his remotes.
I can't recommend Zongkers Custom Furniture strong enough. Thanks for a fun experience and now moving into the next room of the house, I have a few ideas

For a church, spending money on itself is always a questionable prospects and rightly so. There is always more that can be done in the community with folks who need food, shelter, and a little respect. But when it became necessary for us to replace the chancel furniture in our sanctuary, we wanted something that would last and something that would reflect who we are in a tasteful and genuine way. We feel so blessed to have found Zongkers.
Our congregation is unique in that we have a blend of people from one end of the Christian spectrum to the other. A traditional box-type pulpit would not work with us. We wanted something more open, so it would not look like the speaker is hiding. We also wanted something substantial to show the gravity of our faith, something traditional to honor our roots, and all that presented in a way that would fit our modern
We could not have been more pleased with the results. Dans designs were exactly what we were looking for. The solid oak pieces reflect depth and permanence. At the same time they are open and welcoming. The Old World joinery upholds centuries of tradition. And it picks up the unique elements of our sanctuary in a way that feels natural; not contrived. It was such an enjoyable experience to work with Dan, Dennis, Patti, Mike, Curt, and Jeff and all the folks down there (when you can find the place!). They took the time to get to know us, to see our place, to let us poke around the shop and view the work as it was in progress. We are delighted to call the Zongkers people our friends and would highly recommend their work to anyone seeking quality custom woodwork.
Thanks so much to the whole team!

I have had the privilege of working with Dan, Dennis, and his staff when our company entrusted the Zongkers to build a front reception counter for our center. Under the guidance of Dan and Dennis, his staff has done a magnificent job of building the most functional and charming piece furniture that our staff and customers have enjoyed and often praise how great the reception area looks.
Dan and Dennis kept their word, by using only the quality materials and delivered them on schedule. Furthermore, the craftsmen who built and installed the furniture, made the installation much smoother and efficient. In summary, I would just like to underscore the integrity of Zongkers Company and their business practice. It is one of the most unique and accomplished in the Omaha area. I have absolutely no doubt that Zongkers is the perfect choice for this award.

I am submitting a letter of recommendation for Zongkers Custom Furniture shop in Omaha. I have worked with both Dan Zongker and Dennis Zongker for approximately 5 years on many residential and commercial projects in the Omaha and surrounding area. I am an interior designer and have utilized the expertise and workmanship of the Zongkers company on kitchen cabinetry, custom furniture pieces, boardroom tables, and many other special pieces that require a furniture maker of their caliber.
Both Dan and Dennis and their staff have always provided me and my clients with excellent customer service, honest pricing and work, and follow-through. These are the reasons I continue to use Zongkers as my only source of custom woodwork. Recently, Dan and Dennis designed and built a custom shelf for my foyer project at the ASID Designer Show house 2008 here in Omaha. They generously donated their time and materials for this project and the end result is a beautifully simple piece that suits the space.
I have and will continue to recommend Dan and Dennis and their company to all of my clients as the need arises. It is wonderful to have a local company to turn to for such quality work and high integrity.

I have had the pleasure to know Dan and Dennis Zongker for 6 years. They own and operate Zongkers which is a custom woodworking company. I first met them when I was looking to remodel my kitchen. They did such amazing work that I had them remodel my master bedroom/bathroom. There craftsmanship is truly unbelievable.
Dan, Dennis and the employees at Zongkers are extremely talented and very professional. They show a strong sense of commitment to their customers, and are very easy to work with. I know that customer satisfaction is guaranteed. I feel confident in saying that Dan and Dennis Zongkers are capable of handling any situation with thoughtfulness and satisfaction.

Zongkers designed and constructed my new dining room table for me - a gorgeous pedestal African ribbon striped mahogany with maple burl inset.
They were very pleasant to work with, and had an artistic sensibility about how best to design the table. Dan asked for pictures of my dining room and adjoining spaces so that the table design would integrate with the room and space. He presented several different design concepts, and we worked together to refine one concept to fit the space and budget requirements.
They did not seek the commission on the chairs because they felt I could get similar quality for less money by ordering custom chairs from a major furniture manufacturer. I appreciated their integrity in making this recommendation. Negotiations were painless, as they did what they could to meet my budget.
The installation was smooth. The crew was on time, and spent some time carefully assembling the table and leveling it before leaving the premises.
Dan and Dennis gave us a tour of their facility, and were always gracious when we stopped by to check on progress. It was very obvious that their staff takes a lot of pride in their finished product.
I am certainly proud to display the finished product in my own home.
The compliments we receive on an ongoing basis reinforces that we made the right decision to do business with Zongkers Custom Furniture. Your personal touch from the design stages to the delivery and set up was impeccable. Your workforce is the very
best there is.
Our office is extremely pleased to have partnered with Zongkers Custom Furniture. Should we hear of anyone seeking quality custom built furniture, you can be sure that your firm will be highly recommended.
Thank you for everything you have
done for us.
I have been fortunate to find responsible and
reliable people in my career as an Interior Designer. Having been in the
Design profession for 21 years I have weeded thru the people who do fabulous
work and do it in a timely fashion. When I have clients who want a custom
built piece of furniture I never have to think twice as to who I have to
call to get the job done. I have had the privilege to work with Zongkers for
over 13 years and not once has Zongkers let me down. They are truly good
people and fun to work with. Zongkers never takes short cuts and will never
as they take pride in what they build.

When AVI Systems works on such high profile jobs as The First National Bank Tower, Blue Cross Blue Shield Executive Boardroom and Suites or the Omaha World-Herald Freedom Center, we need the very best from our suppliers. That's why we depend on
Zongkers, Inc. to supply custom furniture.
Their eye for detail, the unsurpassed
quality of craftsmanship and their ability to work as a team player make
them my number one choice when it comes to selecting artisans to supply
custom woodwork. When you choose the best, you will never be disappointed.
As an audio/visual systems integrator, we often need to incorporate custom millwork to house audio/visual equipment. Zongkers is always our first choice for this service.
Dan and Dennis have been great to work with. They are very patient with us and take the time to understand our needs. They often work with our engineers to come up with designs that work well for our integration needs while keeping a very elegant look and finish.
Once designed and ordered Zongkers always delivers on time, even when time frames are extremely tight. I would recommend Zongkers to anyone looking for quality work with professional service and support.
I have used Zongkers Custom Furniture for 14 years now and have considered them as one of the top quality and personnel companies in the Omaha area in custom wood crafting. They have the remark ability to satisfy the customers need by working closely with you. There has never been a change to their loyalty in working with me from by initial contact in 1994 till today. I have always received the utmost respect and their quality of service has remained the same over these years.
They have produced some of the most out standing costumed furniture and decor pieces I have every seen for me. Most of their work starts with a concept drawing that I hastily pass on to them. They then work closely with me to turn out what I call "A piece of coal into a diamond" and then work closely with their crafters to create a master piece.
I would personally recommend Zongkers Custom Furniture to anyone needing quality products that require a unique design, flare or even components to adapt to their produce. I have the utmost respect for Dennis and Dan Zongker as they treat me in such a matter that leaves you coming back.

My wife Debbie and I built our new home in 1996. It is a very unique home that we designed and built after much research and planning. We were impressed with Zongkers from the start and contracted with them to build the entertainment center in our family room. We were so happy with it that we have come back to them for several other projects, including an entertainment center / display cabinet and nightstand in the master bedroom, a display cabinet / entertainment center in the basement, and a built in desk and display cabinet in our sons bedroom.
We also contracted with Zongkers to build all of the furniture in our dining room including our dining room table and three other built-in storage and display pieces. Everything turned out great and we are very happy with each project.
Over the years, we have developed a high level of confidence in the quality of their work. In our experience, Zongkers has always delivered what they have promised and at a reasonable price. Dan and Dennis have been personally involved in each of our projects and we have found them to be easy and fun to work with. They also are creative and bring great ideas to each project.
We have recommended Zongkers to family and friends and we would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone who is looking for a high quality and unique piece of furniture.

Dan, Dennis, Curt & Mike,
We returned to our house Friday ( after 8 weeks) to find a beautifully installed unit awaiting.... the cabinet is wonderful and we are very pleased with it's aesthetics and the nice functioning drawers, doors etc. Curt & Mike are true craftsmen and it was pretty painless working with you all... just go away and "poof" , it's done!
Sincerely, Tina & Dale
We got the furniture all up and running a week ago today...cable and stuff connected...and I've now lived with it all for a week. I love it. And my husband does too. He doesn't really watch TV in bed like I do but we both love the look of the room.
The console and end tables really serve to enclose the bed and the room just looks much cleaner in style and very sophisticated. Not too crowded either. And I feel like a queen with my very cool TV.
Just wanted you to know that you guys did an outstanding job on all of it.
