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]

Includes a 4-hook perch for displaying the games, and a solution sheet for the truly wasted/lazy.
