Beady eyed bird looking for collectables and design stuff
Did anyone see that Kevin McCloud (I love Kevin) programme on Channel 4 recently where they tried to re-use all of the different parts of an old aeroplane? No? Well I’ve found it on 4OD here for you.
Essentially the challenge was to see if a plane could be recycled, and all of the various metals and components in the plane re-used and re-purposed into usable, and in some cases, really beautiful objects.
Well it seems as though Boeing have taken a leaf out of that book and are now stocking some really lovely furniture made out of old engine parts, check out this table made from an old engine rotor…
Personally I have far less high aspirations, and have fallen just a little bit in love with this beverage cart, it would look lovely in a bright white and stainless steel kitchen, though I’m sure there are about a million and one other possible uses for it – maybe a little filing cabinet – maybe a shoe rack?
Anyway, thats a snip at just over £1k so that perfectly do-able, right? Right? Um, perhaps not.
