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.
Sporting an all-new case silhouette and both analog and digital readouts, the G-Shock GA700-1A Watch is an ideal entry point to this iconic brand. The dial and hands protrude outward, giving the watch a 3D look and making it more legible, while the front-button super illuminator LED light makes darkness an afterthought. It also offers world time, a stopwatch, a countdown timer, multiple alarms, and, of course, the shock- and water-resistance the G-Shock line is known for. Available in three colorways.
