Tornado Fighter-Bomber Jet Engine Table by Custom Workshop

This jet engine table was built from a decommissioned Tornado Fighter-Bomber RB199 power unit by the talented team at Custom Workshop – Marek and Grzegorz.

The Turbo-Union RB199 Jet Engine

The Turbo-Union RB199 engine is a three-shaft turbofan engine (with afterburner) capable of 16,186 ft lbs of thrust. It has a thrust reverser, single-crystal turbine blades, and a total weight of 2,390 lbs. The engine was developed jointly by MTU, Rolls-Royce, and Avio Aero, and it was first test-flown in 1972 attached to a modified Avro Vulcan.

Most commonly used on the Panavia Tornado multi-role combat aircraft, the Turbo-Union RB199 has amassed over 5 million hours of flight time, mostly with the Royal Air Force, Luftwaffe, German Navy, and the Italian Air Force.

The Custom Workshop Tornado Fighter-Bomber Jet Engine Table

The table you see here was built by hand by Marek and Grzegorz of Custom Workshop, a Polish company that specializes in the creation of some genuinely remarkable pieces of industrial design.

The table is made using multiple sections from a decommissioned Tornado engine, assembled together carefully at a height of 53 cm and a width of 100 cm, with a total weight of 75 kilograms. A tempered glass top is fitted, though you’d be reticent to put anything on it as it would block the view of the engineering within.

The price is €2,500 which actually seems pretty reasonable for a coffee table that would have been capable of Mach 2.2 in its previous life.

Re-Purposed Oil Barrel Light Fixtures by Vibrazioni Art Design

Vibrazioni Art Design is essentially an Italian version of Daft Punk that builds custom motorcycles and homewares – all out of their workshop in the Emilia-Romagna region of Northern Italy near Bologna.

The favorite canvas of the two men is oil drums, millions of which are made each year to transport oil and fuel, before being either discarded or recycled.

These drums are typically painted with the company colors and insignia of their brand, and they’re made from steel – meaning that they’re ideal as a starting point to create other useful things like chairs, tables, light fixtures, and motorcycle fairings.

The light fixtures you see here are each made from a single barrel, cut into sections, reshaped, then joined together into a 6-sided acorn-like hanging light. Each is made largely by hand with minimal machine work in a process that the team behind V.A.D. is justifiably proud of.

Craft A Brew American Pale Ale Beer Brewing Kit – $45 USD

The American Pale Ale Beer Brewing Kit by Craft A Brew is an all-inclusive $45 kit that’ll make approximately a dozen 12 oz bottles of beer.

Many of us love the idea of trying out the process of creating craft beer, the barrier to entry has always been cost and complexity. Craft A Brew was founded in 2010 to get this barrier to entry as low as possible by developing inclusive kits that allow you try a variety of recipes, brewing 10-12 bottles each time.

Each 1 gallon kit includes a 1 gallon glass carboy (a large bottle) with a rubber stopper, a funnel, a racking cane, transfer tubing, an airlock, a thermometer, a sanitizer pack, the Guide to Craft Brewing booklet, and the all important American Pale Ale recipe kit.

American Pale Ale is a beer type closely related to the American India Pale Ale and its forebear the India Pale Ale. The American version is famously “hoppy” giving the beer a bitter and sometimes floral/citrus character, this is largely due to the significant amount of Cascade hops used during the brewing process.

Perhaps the most significant benefit of this brewing kit is the fact that it’s designed to be reusable, allowing you to buy different recipe packs for $15 USD apiece and try a wide variety of different beers.

The included American Pale Ale recipe kit contains 1.25 lbs of dry malt extract, Cascade hops, Perle hops, specialty grains, yeast, a traditional grain steeping bag, and a sanitizer pack to clean it all afterwards ready for the next batch.

The current recipe pack offerings from Craft A Brew include the Irish Stout recipe, the Golden Strong Ale recipe, the Oktoberfest Ale Recipe, the Hefeweizen Recipe, the Fool’s Gold Golden Stout, the Belgian Abbey Dubbel recipe, the New England IPA, the Brown Ale, the Chocolate Milk Stout recipe and many more.

B-17 Wright R-1820 Cyclone Radial Engine Table

This B-17 Wright R-1820 Cyclone radial engine table is built from a decommissioned R-1820 engine – this is the motor that powered every wartime example of the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and Douglas SBD Dauntless bombers as well as countless other aircraft, armored vehicles, and tanks including the M4A6 Sherman and the M6 Heavy Tank.

The Wright R-1820 Cyclone first entered production in 1931, it’s a 9-cylinder radial engine that was loosely based on the Wright P-2 engine, and it was built under license in the Soviet Union as the Shvetsov M-25 and in Spain as the Hispano-Suiza 9V.

Over the course of its decades-long production run the R-1820 was developed into dozens of different engine specifications including diesel variants. The most powerful example was the R-1820-82WA which was capable of an eye-watering 1,525 hp.

Although there are still a considerable number of Wright R-1820 Cyclones in service, most of them have been retired, and a lucky few have been converted into functional art like this one. With a diameter of 1,600 mm (5′ 3″) and a height of 1,100 mm (3′ 7″) it’s not a diminutive piece of furniture, meaning it’d make an excellent centerpiece and an ideal beverage consumption platform in a suitably large drawing or billiard room.

This Boeing 747 Wheel Table by Plane Industries is more or less exactly what it says on the tin – it’s an authentic Boeing 747 alloy wheel that’s been meticulously rebuilt into what is undeniably one of the greatest coffee tables money can buy.

Each wheel is sourced directly from the airline industry, wheels that have spent thousands of hours in service are selected, before having their two halves separated and chemically stripped.

Once the two halves of the alloy wheel have been taken back to bare metal they’re painstakingly polished for over 100 hours to a mirror finish. The inside of the table is powder-coated black, and a 40 inch piece of toughened and polished 8mm glass sits on top.

The completed coffee table measures in at 510mm high, by 610mm wide. The glass is 1100mm in diameter, and it weighs in at 70 kilograms.

Williams F1 Forged Magnesium Wheel Coffee Table

This is a Williams Racing race-used wheel that was fitted to the FW35 car in the 2013 F1 World Championship season. It’s now been converted into a coffee table by the addition of a toughened glass top, but other than this it’s in the same condition it was in when used by the team – dings and all.

Each of these forged magnesium wheels is manufactured by Rays in Japan using their own unique, proprietary process. Magnesium wheels are approximately 30% lighter than a comparable aluminum-alloy wheel, while still having comparable strength, and also possessing superior vibration damping properties.

The wheel/coffee table you see here still has the captive wheel nut attached, as well as the original balance weights attached to the rim, making it an excellent conversation piece, and the ideal place to sit your beer while watching the race.
