The detail here is astounding.
We've seen this level of crazy automotive detail and craftsmanship before. Last time, it was a wooden Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing. Back then, were blown away by the level of detail in the model, from its working gullwing doors to its immaculately crafted engine bay. This tiny wooden Jeep Wrangler 392 blows it out of the water.
The video, which we've included below, covers the creation process from a solid block of wood to the incredibly true-to-life model you see here. It's an impressive feat and includes incredible details like a removable windscreen and tiny wiper blades.
Just like the 300SL Woodworking Art built before, the engine bay gets the same meticulous attention to detail as the rest of the car, with visible features like a fuse box, air box, and intake manifold. That was easily the most impressive part of the Gullwing we saw, but things have been taken to another level here.
This scale model has working coilover suspension and body-on-frame construction, just like the real Wrangler. The amount of engineering know-how required to pull that off on its own is impressive. But to do that from scratch with wood? Insane. The frame even has a driveshaft, which mimics the construction of the real car's setup. We even see little brake rotors at all four corners.
Of course, that's all without addressing the exterior details. Tow hooks, headlights, and those tiny headlights frankly pale in comparison to the "passenger" compartment. The W(ood)rangler gets working removable doors, windscreens, and a functional tailgate. The rear glass can even be opened, just like on the real thing. Again, we're blown away by the level of talent and attention to detail here.
Just look at the tail lights. They're almost perfect replicas of the real Wrangler's lights. We'd be shocked if there wasn't a tiny wiring harness running under the wooden seats. Normally, Woodworking Art has an Etsy page, Woodworking ArtCrafts. The models aren't for sale as of now, unfortunately. The page is blank and no pricing for previous models is listed, which is a downer. Funnily enough, that also makes this Wrangler 392 a bit rarer than the real deal.
