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.
THE BEST Carving
After impressing us with his sculpture of that Toyota Land Cruiser, Vietnam-based Woodworking Art is back with another great automotive woodcarving.

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.
Artist Salavat Fidai (Салават Фидаи) creates incredibly detailed sculptures using the sharpened pencil leads as his medium. Among his many miniature creations are Wall-E, the Statue of Liberty, a prancing horse, a Big Ben, a violin, and the world’s smallest elephant.
