During childhood, many of us enjoyed the classic puzzle game of assembling famous cars from 3D wooden pieces. Yet, a remarkable duo, Well, and his young son, has elevated this concept, crafting fully functional cars predominantly from wood.

Artist and YouTube duo ‘ND – Working Art’ boast 2.8 million subscribers on their channel, dedicated to showcasing their wooden creations. Initially, they embarked on their journey by crafting wooden toy cars from blocks of timber. One captivating video depicts the meticulous woodcarving process of a Mercedes S600 Maybach 2020, while another showcases a meticulously detailed toy Honda Civic Type R 2020. Their ingenuity reached new heights when they constructed a wooden model Ferrari Aperta, allowing their son to actually sit in and drive, igniting his imagination as a supercar driver. Complete with a sleek white paint job, chrome badges, and intricate detailing down to the gear-stick, the wooden car looks authentic. This raises the inevitable question: Why not create a fully functional real-life car entirely out of wood?

The duo decided on a Lamborghini Vision GT. They began by sketching out the design, assembling a metal frame with a real engine attached to the rear axle, and then came the woodcarving. Finally, after 96 days of craftsmanship, the car was finished— complete with working lights! The father and son celebrated by taking hold of the wooden steering wheel and taking the car to the roads.

The duo has also created an EBR 105 Tank, a Rolls Royce, and even a train!

But probably the craftsmen most attention-grabbing build would be their recreation of the Tesla Cybertruck! The fully functioning truck even comes fitted with a tablet, keeping the high-tech spirit of Tesla alive, and a fully functioning cyberquad that sits in the truck-bed. The wooden build took ND – Working Art 100 days to build, but their efforts paid off, having earned the attention of the spaceman himself, Elon Musk. Upon completion of the wooden recreation, ND – Working Art reached out to Mr Musk on his social media platform ‘X’, saying:

“I am a passionate content creator with a deep love for wooden vehicles and a tremendous admiration for both you and Tesla. Over the years, I’ve embarked on several wooden car projects to gain valuable experience. And today I launched a car that I am very impressed with, the Cybertruck…I hope to have the honour of gifting this wooden Cybertruck to you and Tesla, and wish you and Tesla continued success and maintain your position in the international arena.” Elon Musk accepted the kind offer.
