5 thoughts on “Cool Furniture Made from Vintage Airplane Parts”
Cool if I were going to a restaurant or some other kind of novelty place. Not so cool for the home interior though. Has that kind of cold distant feeling.
This idea came to my mind one time so I started googling and found this site. I been in the aircraft maintenance industry for 17 years. This is cool.
How much is the price of the bar? Do you ever consider renting these also?
We don’t own those products. For detailed information, you can check the designer site http://www.motoart.com/bars
