Woodcarving Art has created some pretty amazing wooden models of vehicles, but this 22-wheeler is his most impressive yet. He started out with a big, heavy piece of timber, then gradually cut and carved it into a miniature of the imposing International Lonestar semi truck, pulling a 12-wheeled trailer behind it.
Maker The Metalist took the head from a well-used axe and reworked it into the most heavy metal tool ever. He first built up some extra metal with his MIG and Tig welders, then engraved a badass skull image that wraps around both sides of the blade. We love the iron fist hammer he used to reattach its head.
Woodworking Art adds to their vehicle collection by carving a Chevy Silverado HD pickup truck out of Fujian cypress wood. The miniature has working wheels, doors, liftgate, hood, steering, suspension, and steps. They also made a trailer to test its towing capacity, which is nowhere near the real truck’s 36,000 lb. max.
Ank Creative makes miniature cars out of plastic. We’ve seen the DeLorean they made from a cigarette lighter, now here’s another movie-inspired ride. This time we’ve got a recreation of the Batmobile from Tim Burton’s Batman, carved from black plastic scrounged from a speaker cabinet and a few other bits and bobs.
Woodworking Art continues to impress us with their hand-carved models of cars, trucks, and SUVs. Their latest sculpture is a detailed version of the luxurious, yet highly-capable Lexus GX 460. The part where they carved out the cabin was immensely satisfying, as was lathing the tires and carving the wheel rim pattern.
We had a great time behind the wheel of the new Land Rover Defender. It’s a rugged, capable, and handsome ride that’s surprisingly smooth. Woodworking Art saw something in the Defender 110 X that he liked too, and decided to make it a subject for his masterful wood carving skills.
Awesome Woodcraft builds some amazing miniature wood vehicles. In this video, they take on the biggest SUV they could think of, the boxy, gas-guzzling Hummer H1. The detailed model includes wheels that turn and steer, a spring suspension, and a hinged hood and doors.
The Bugatti Centodieci is an incredible car, inspired by the automaker’s 110-year history. Just 10 of the cars are being produced, at a price of $9 million each. The guys from ND Woodworking Art couldn’t quite afford one, so they built a kid-sized version out of wood. It has working lights, steering, and a basic drivetrain.
A fan of woodworker Mr. Zhou sent him a block of colorful material and requested that he use it to carve a chess piece. The process of turning the piece on the lathe is quite satisfying, especially watching the shavings as they go flying. The block appears to be wood that’s been infused with pigments, but we’re not sure.
We may not have the Ranger Raptor here in the U.S. yet, so we’ll have to enjoy Ford’s the mid-size off-road truck from afar for now. It looks particularly great carved out of wood, as Woodworking Art shows off his impressive vehicle modeling skills yet again. We love how he incorporated the working suspension and steering.
Artist Salavat Fidai is best known for his intricate pencil tip carvings. He recently pointed his sharpened knife blade at something a little more edible than graphite, transforming an ordinary carrot into a series of connected chain links. Now how do you link multiple carrots together?
After building himself a rustic keyboard from wood, builder of things The Q decided to make a matching mouse. He started out with a hunk of nice hardwood, copied the shape of a plastic mouse onto it, then got to work cutting it down, sculpting its form, then carving out its center to make room for its mechanism.
After impressing us with his sculpture of that Toyota Land Cruiser, Vietnam-based Woodworking Art is back with another great automotive woodcarving. This time, he turned a block of wood into a detailed replica of the Ferrari SF1000 Formula 1 race car. Though we can’t endorse using your bare foot as a wood vise.
Fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasies will love to see this amazing wood carving by artist Jonas Olsen. After sketching out his concept, he took a hunk of burled wood and worked painstakingly with his Dremel to reveal the terrifying eye of the one dragon to rule them all, the mighty Smaug.
While we’ve always thought any sculpture of Iron Man should be cast out of a hunk of Iron, we’re gonna make an exception for this which we recently spotted from Woodart Vietnam. We’re not sure what sort of red wood the artist used, but the shiny details of Tony Stark’s Mark L armor were added with gold leaf.
“I’m not a very good woodworker… so that’s why I have to introduce a stupid gimmick that makes people want to watch my video.” Yep, so that’s why I did a thing decided to carve himself a wooden spoon using a metal spoon as his only tool. And some sandpaper… and a furnace… and…
Frank Howarth knows a thing or two about making spheres, so we couldn’t help but be transfixed as we watched him turn an ordinary block of walnut wood into a beautifully-smooth replica of an 8-ball. The round clamp he built for holding it on the CNC table is ingenious.
Expert engraver Shaun Hughes turns his attention to Charles Schultz’s lovable loser, as he deftly carves his famous expression and “Oh, Good Grief” catchphrase into an old Buffalo nickel. Fortunately, five cents is just enough for Lucy’s psychiatric help booth.
