There's something extra cool about furniture born of reused parts from airplanes, and the MotoArt 747 Cowling Bar ($TBA) is a prime example. Made from an authentic cowling that once covered the Pratt & Whitney jet engine of a Boeing 747, this unique bar features a half-inch tempered glass counter, mirror-polished aluminum braces, a hardwood bar counter, bottom shelves for storage, and more. It's a perfect match for Ejection Chair barstools, and while pricing varies, expect it to be more than a R/C 747, but less than the real thing. [Thanks, Clay]
drunks houseguests amused with the Tavern Puzzle Collection ($100). This set of four classic games — the basic Bottoms Up, intermediate Clef Hanger, difficult U-Turn, and "complex" Long Island Catch — is made from 6mm steel, including some wooden beads, with the goal of each to remove the metal ring from inside the puzzle. Includes a 4-hook perch for displaying the games, and a solution sheet for the truly wasted/lazy.

A trustworthy duffle bag should do way more than just carry your stuff. It should protect it. Which means it should be incredibly tough and reliable, like the Best Made Co. Roll Top Duffle Bag. It's made using 1000 Denier Cordura — fabric so tough it's been a staple for the military for decades. It's also lined in 100% cotton twill with straps that are densely woven and adjustable for durability and extra strength. The Cordura is naturally resistant to water, but the polyurethane coated lining offers another heavy-duty liquid barrier, while taped zippers provide a third water-tight seal. Available in black or olive, and in 50L or 100L sizes. The Roll Top Duffle is built to last — whether you need it for a weekend trip or have to live out of it for a month.
