In only took two months to create.
Of late, we've been mesmerized by the crafty skills of woodworkers around the world who have been creating miniaturized replicas of real-life cars. We've seen everything from a C8 Corvette to a BMW 328 Hommage. Most recently, these woodworking masterpieces have even been complex enough to feature scissor doors, as seen on a recent Lamborghini Sian Roadster replica. The latest creation is arguably the most impressive, boasting a proper roof and windscreen. It's a Ferrari 250 GTO replica, and it took 70 days to complete. The effort seems to have paid off pretty well though, as the finished product runs and drives and even has a working lighting system.
The video is once again from Truong Van Dao, who goes by ND - Woodworking Art on YouTube, and it seems that his creations are just getting better and better. The same sort of process is followed as with his earlier builds, which means that before any woodworking begins, a steel frame is made up. In this case, it even has a proper, working suspension system and steering rack. Once he's proven that the electric motor and steering work, roughly hewn blocks of wood are used to make up the general shape of the car's base before grinding discs are used to further refine the shape.
Sanding discs are then used to perfect the curves while the supports for the roof structure are placed in the body. Once the overall shape has been sufficiently refined, smaller details like the non-functional windscreen wipers, badges, and faux grilles are added. There's an array of gauges so you don't run out of battery power too, and the whole thing is coated in a lacquer to protect it. As always, the wood is reclaimed from discarded trees, so there's really no negative to this kind of art. In fact, the Vietnamese master woodworker's skills are so valued that the video description explains how his Ferrari creation was swapped for a real Mercedes-Benz GLA. Not bad for 70 days works.
