Jet engine cowling desk


Here’s a good candidate for a remake, if you have a jet engine cowling hanging around (although I’m sure you could make an approximation):

Beautifully retro in feel, the aluminium engine cowling, which measures in at 100″ in diameter, is lovingly sanded and mirror polished prior to being fitted with a hardwood desktop and shelving system and a ¼” working surface prior to shipping though, as you would expect, purchasing details are only available on contact (pouting secretary not included).

    This is from the artists at MotoArt… they really have some great for sale (awfully pricey though). They even had a show on the Discovery Channel a few years back.

    Yeah, i swear i saw their show on Discovery. They make aviation inspired furniture. The wing-desk was amazing.
