Table Created from a Restored WWI Propellor

This stunning and unique centrepiece is the result of six months’ work by Shaun Brownell and the team at Rhubarb Chairs based in East Sussex.

The Blades of Glory table is a one-of-a-kind piece crafted from a 1917 Royal Aircraft Factory, BE2c biplane propellor, used by the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Naval Air Service. Complete with eight vintage balloon backed mahogany framed chairs with delicately embroidered organic linen RAF roundel seats, the table has been skilfully engineered by craftsmen using the finest laminated Brazilian mahogany to echo the propeller’s construction. 

Along with its original handwritten ‘Roll of Honour’ of the pilots and ground crew, which was fully restored, there is also the manufacturer’s label stating ‘Lang Propeller Ltd Weybridge’ on show. The centre of the table is enhanced by a laser engraved original photograph of the biplane surrounded by its heroic crew. This is a truly unique item which tells a story of aviation’s past.
