RAF Wing Desk
This is an aluminium wing section that we’ve made into an RAF wing desk. As you can tell these came to us with RAF stickers and serial numbers on implying they were from RAF stock. We believe these are the braking panels off wings that rise up to slow the plane down on landing. Originally these were 4m long so they must have been off quite significant RAF planes.
So far we’ve cut each setion in half to make 2 x 2m desks that are both ~65cm deep or wide. Each desk has also been polished to a shiny chrome finish which looks amazing.
A truly one off piece of RAF history and now modern furniture.
Priced individually but we have 2 of them.
What we do @ GB Salvage;
GB Salvage offer a wide range of plane parts both to be converted and already converted into stunning furniture and lighting. You’ll find a diverse range of parts we’ve sourced from retired planes all across the UK and Europe
This aim inevitably means we buy a lot of stock that is very time consuming and costly to convert into finished furniture. Therefore in this category you will find parts and components. You can then ask us to convert these items for you or we’ll happily help you do it. Alongside rusty parts we haven’t yet had time to convert, you’ll also find our finished projects. We have a range of beautiful seats, tables and mirrors.
We hope that showing our raw materials will help inspire project and furniture ideas you’ll want to discuss. As you’ll see we also sell the components ready for conversion.
Under certain circumstances, we also offer a rental service for film companies, sets, props and one off events. So please get in touch if you’d like to come and see all our stock and discuss a project.
A range of military parts sourced from the MOD ranging from a small cog right up to missile bases, bombs and 6m long fuel tanks. We focus on British military goods but do occasionally find foreign military pieces of interest. And we also specialise in modern era militaria but do have the odd antique gunsight for example on offer.
We convert and restore every item we can but occasionally have to offer our components for sale to generate space. Therefore in this section you’ll find items we haven’t yet got to. We’d love to discuss your project idea and can convert items to your specification. We undertake work for private and commercial clients.
