Douglas DC-3/C-47 Dakota engine cowling reception desk – polished

The Douglas DC-3 was developed by Douglas in the 1930s. Over 600 were built before the aircraft was developed into the C-47 Skytrain/Dakota that became famous in World War II where it was put to use on almost all battlefields to resupply men and materials. It changed the way people were transported. After WW II, and even until today, it was used on several (remote) locations in the world as a workhorse moving passengers and goods.

A unique way to say hello

This one-of-a-kind reception desk was built around an authentic engine cowling of a C-47/DC-3. Paint was removed, the surface was polished and used as the exterior of this desk. On the inside, a desktop was created and several shelves. The cowl flaps are still mobile and add to the authentic feel. A unique item for a business environment that needs something special.
