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.
Designed to stand up to the climate and terrain of the Pacific Northwest, the Danner Mountain 600 Boots are a great choice for your next outdoor trek. Made with legendary hiking boots of the past in mind, each pair features a Vibram midsole and a Fuga outsole for the grip you need on uneven turf and the comfort you need during a challenging hike. So while they look like a great pair of boots that are built to protect and last, they are also lightweight and comfortable so you'll reach for them whether you're adventure bound or just bound for a night out.
