C-119 Flap Airplane Desk

Built to much higher standards than ordinary, mass-produced executive desks;  the C-119 airplane Flap Desk is built limited quantities from a flap of the C-119.

Luxury is clearly defined  as a 3/8” glass surface, hovers over the top of the piece. Customized to match the contours of the flap, it exposes the rivet detail and handsome intricacies of its construction. The legs are made of 4” x 8” architectural aluminum I beams. The legs are lightened by cutting radial holes at the top and bottom and are then powder coated for a rugged black wrinkle finish.

  • 120 man-hours of labor painstakingly cutting, grinding, polishing and buffing the flap produces a mirror finish
  • The flap is not square, so the glass surface is cut to conform to its shape
  • Available in many different colors or simply high gloss aluminum
