BOEING 747 WHEEL TABLE

AIRCRAFT PART: BOEING 747 ALLOY WHEEL HUB

Once the wheel has been chemically stripped, every curve, peak and recess is sanded and polished to produce a stunning mirror-finish. This is a painstaking process that is undertaken entirely by hand, accumulating over 100 hours of work from start to finish. The inside of the table is powder-coated black, whilst a 40 inch piece of toughened, polished glass sits on top. A beautiful piece that creates a distinctive atmospheric statement.

MADE FROM PLANE

At our workshop on a old farm in Wiltshire, UK we take delivery of each wheel, still with the tyre surrounding. We get to work on this extremely time consuming piece, meticulously sanding, every square inch of the alloy until it is ready for polish. 

A SPLASH OF COLOUR

Although never really seen, we powder coat the inside of each wheel. Personally, we like to add a big splash of colour, yellow or pink are the favourites, just to jazz things up a bit.

SAND, POLISH AND SHINE

Once we have finished all the prep work, the polishing begins! Each table goes through 4 polishing stages from head to toe, every square inch. Once thats complete, we rejoin the top and the bottom of the alloy with the newly plated bolts. Glass on top, and ready to take off!
