I fly airplanes - formerly for the US Navy and now as a First Officer on the Boeing 747. I prefer vintage airplanes to new ones.
On a regular basis I travel to aircraft salvage yards (or boneyards) and buy scrap/non-airworthy aircraft parts. I bring these parts back to my workshop in Florida and repurpose them into the things you see on this site. I also sell some of these parts on my eBay and Etsy store pages. I have a particularly keen interest in jet engines and propulsion systems, which I disassemble and then use the internal components for projects. I also enjoy rebuilding cockpit instrument panels.
I do all of my own metalwork, cutting, fabrication, and polishing.
In addition to furniture I make key and travel tags out of aircraft windows - called Jet-Eyes.
I also own and operate a company that makes patches and flags out of aircraft grade titanium - called Mach Metal.
If you'd like to discuss a custom furniture project, or anything else you see here, please contact me via the contact page, or email me directly at ryan@JET-EYES.com. Thanks for visiting!
