KC-97 – Fuel Cradle Desk

+ Free Shipping

Only in the world of MotoArt could an old fuel tank cradle from a KC-97 Stratotanker aircraft be transformed into a piece of custom furniture that is absolutely stunning. These cradles served as supports for the jet fuel tanks in a plane that resembled a B-29 bomber, but now are the foundation of an incredibly distinct and modern creation that is like nothing in the marketplace, or for that matter, the planet!


The KC-97 Fuel Tank Cradle Desk is a robust design supported by arched legs that reflect the lines and the character of the fuel cradle’s lines. It is shaped in an attractive and traditional “L”– main desk and return, although the return is optional. The custom desk is topped with a 1/2″ tempered glass surface supported by a stylish 1” square aluminum bar that is arched and polished to a mirror finish, subtlety complementing and accenting the overall design.  As a unit, the KC-97 Fuel Tank Cradle Desk fuses historic, traditional and contemporary sensibilities.


Options include a perforated aluminum privacy screen in anodized and powder-coated color finishes. Standard size is 92″ long with a 69″ return, but can be customized to other dimensions.
