We bring you one of the most amazing coffee tables you would come across, take a pick for your home or office.
C-130 Hercules coffee table
While sipping coffee over this table you can tell your friends about the aircraft from which this piece of furniture was created. It will give you immense pride in sharing your knowledge about the transport aircraft used by the military of several nations.
The C-130 Hercules made by Lockheed Martin is a huge aircraft used chiefly to transport forces and heavy equipment. The titanium flap, which was attached to the wing of the aircraft, is the main component of the table. A base made out of aluminum which is powder coated is attached to it. For a perfect smooth surface, a glass is placed on top of the flap.
F-4 Phantom coffee table
A coffee table made of parts from the F-4 Phantom fighter would be a cool thing for your living room. The ancestor of the F-16 was one of the most dreaded machines during the cold war and even after that for a long time. Ten burner cans from the aircraft are attached in a circular fashion to form the base.
A glass top also circular in shape with a thickness of 3/8” is placed on top of the cans. This tempered glass has a diameter of 40”, to accommodate the things that would be placed on it. The burner cans are fitted with red LED lights to give it a dramatic effect, especially in the evening time.
L1011 Spinner coffee table
NASA used this not so popular airliner to launch Pegasus rockets in the space. Lockheed developed the L1011 for American Airlines; sadly, the airlines chose to go with their rivals. Lockheed was able to find other customers for their aircraft, which had a capacity to carry 400 passengers.
The coffee table is created from a propeller gear dome and titanium spinner from the L1011 aircraft. The glass top of the table spins like a compact disk, though not as fast but is cool enough. The lights that glow in the table give it a theatrical effect.
C-119 Aileron coffee table
This coffee table is created from the C-119, military transport aircraft also known as the ‘flying boxcar’. Two rectangular metal frames form the base of the structure, with a glass top placed on the top of the frames. A wing aileron is fixed inside and above the lower pipes of the frame, a glass top is placed on top of this too. The frames are powder coated to give the table an admirable style.
The glass top and the glass shelf underneath gives you a lot of space to keep magazines, newspaper, artifacts or miniature aircraft models to get an awesome look.
Jacobs’s radial engine table
Looks like Steven Spielberg got it custom made for his next Si-Fi flick. The parts used in the coffee table’s construction were taken from the Continental and Jacobs’s radial engine. A round glass top is somehow fixed between the table, a small tower sort of a thing remains on the table top. Below the glass are shiny chromium plated steel gears, gold plated bronze bearings, and aluminum engine parts that rest on a black powder coated base. Never mind the obsolete engine technology, the piece of furniture is funky enough to be placed in the living room.
Coffee Tables from aviation parts are a stylish option to enhance the aesthetics of your home or office.
