Aviture makes furniture and décor for the home and office using recycled aircraft parts, in combination with materials such as decorative woods, glass and other metals. Most of our products incorporate parts from General Aviation aircraft as opposed to Military or Commercial aircraft.



We focus on creating distinctive well-engineered first-class pieces for the aviation enthusiast. Each piece of Aviture receives its own permanently attached data plate identifying its date of manufacture, aircraft parts description and individual serial number.

First Flight Table

Blending Piper and Cessna parts, this coffee table is as much art as it is functional furniture. Vertical structure is provided by a Piper PA-60 Aerostar engine mount, while Cessna C-177 Cardinal Flap sections make up the horizontal components. The ends of each flap section are capped with polycarbonate allowing a glimpse of the internal structure of the piece. The lower flap
section is rotated 90 degrees from the upper surface, which affords visual stimulus regardless of vantage point. In keeping with the Cardinals cantilever wing design, both flap sections rest upon cantilever chassis. Both glass surfaces as well as the base feet are fully adjustable for straight and level flight.

Length: 47"

Width: 22"

Height: 25"

Color: 

Engine mount: powder coated textured chrome.
Upper/Lower Chassis: powder coated wrinkle black.
Upper/Lower Flap: satin white exterior, silver
aluminum interior.

1 engine mount
2 flap sections
2 pieces of glass measuring approximately 22" x 47" (1/2" thick) and 15" x 19" (1/4" thick)

Roll Out Table

Who would have ever thought to make a table from an old engine mount? Not too many people. The engineering to take something that originally flew at over 200 mph and create a fully functional piece of furniture was a time consuming endeavor. That's why there are only TWO of these in existence right now. With custom-built isolator fittings to support the upper glass surface, and uniquely engineered and built cantilever brackets to support a lower glass shelf, this piece is truly a work of art. 12 individual leveling points on this table assure the user will have a level flight with this piece of Aviture. adjustable for straight and level flight.

As an aviation buff, it's my pleasure to take pieces of aircraft that are no longer airworthy and find new uses for them.  I have piles of ailerons, flaps, horizontal stabilizers, struts and more waiting for renewed purpose in a new home. Whether you are an aviation buff or pilot, I am ready to work with you to make a custom piece of furniture for your home.
