Aviation Desk

the desk

I have a thing for desks.  I built my own oversized one (now that I think of it, I don’t think I ever posted that DIY, I should get on that), and I’ve wanted to make another one  of a different theme for some time now.  Well, reddit user SirLanceOlong decided to make his own desk based on an airplane wing design.  The design is just about the only thing aviation about it though, there’s far too much heavy wood involved in it.  I’m sure the desk is sturdy enough to put a small car on top of, but it’s grossly over-engineered, just my type of design!

I think my favorite part however is the pin-up girl painted on the side.  That really makes this desk transcend from a regular over thought out airplane wing desk, to a truly dedicated work of Aviation art.

He has two large (100 photo) gallery over on imgur and a smaller 50 photo gallery of the more final product.  Feel free to look it over, including the first inspiration photo.  I got to say, he did a good job of coming close to the inspiration.
