    Feb 21, 2008, 4:15 PM - Han Solo in Carbonite Desk / Table - custom themed furniture from Tom Spina Designs! #1

    Edit - after a showing at Star Wars Celebration V, this classic Han Solo Carbonite table sold for charity for $10,500! You can read more about that here: http://www.tomspinadesigns.com/Han-S...harity-CV.html


    Hey all,

    Just updated http://www.tomspinadesigns.com with some pics of a new project that Richard and I worked on together. You can now find it on our Custom Themed Furniture page

    We had someone looking for a highly unique desk with a sci-fi theme for his home theater/home studio office. I created several designs and eventually hit upon the idea of using a Han in Carbonite (derived from an old Illusive Concepts artist proof) as the top of a combination desk and art piece.

    I did the initial concept and sketches and Richard handled the details, worked with the metal shop and did the final build. Two RPF'rs also contributed resin detail pieces (where better to go than the RPF for the best parts around?).

    The main "box" for the desk is custom metal, as are the computer cut side boxes which both light up with an orange glow. The piece is finished with a 1/2" thick glass table top.

    We're both really proud of this piece and hope you enjoy the pics

    best,
    Tom

    I've always thought the Han in Carbonite would make a great coffee table - this is great, tho!

    Brilliant! I can almost picture Vader perched behind that desk struggling to solve a Rubix cube...

    That is awesome. I was actually considering something like this if I could ever get a HIC.

    Tom & Richard, that is so frakking cool.

    And practical too--the sculpture is a great built-in incentive to keep your desk clutter-free.

    Cool.
    When the desk gets cluttered with papers etc... at some point there will be a gap in the mess exposing only Han's eye and it will be creepy, like when Anthony Michael Hall got trapped under the glass coffee table in Sixteen Candles.

    JAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!!!!!!
