    Here is the stunning “Excelsior,” which found its home in the customer lounge at HRE’s Vista, California headquarters. The legs are made from GE-manufactured shaft assemblies used for the CFM-56 engines on Boeing 737-3 and 737-4 aircraft. The counter base is component of a Pratt & Whitney JT9 engine used for the Boeing 747-100 with approximately 30,000 cycles on it. For the bar top, Marc called on Mel Gragirena at L.A. Fabricators to build a custom one out of Black Walnut for its rich, dark color. There is a display case for one of HRE’s custom wheels in the top, itself a paragon of industrial design coveted by automobile aficionados.
