A cabinetmaker from Asia shared another handmade model

Vietnamese joiner and YouTube author Woodworking Art shared the process of making a 1967 Ford Mustang GT500 scale model from wood scraps. It took the craftsman three weeks to create a detailed copy of the classic sports car, but the video was able to fit in eight minutes.

The wooden copy of the Ford Mustang GT500 is better worked out than other large-scale models made of metal and plastic: the master carefully cut out the smallest details, such as the gear lever or paddle shifters, meticulously approached the creation of wheels, pasted imitation optics and glass.

The wooden model consists of several components, some of which are made in a very original way, for example, tie rods and spring suspension elements. The joiner does not use any special tools: “modeling” takes place “by eye”, and the size is selected after printing large-scale photographs on a regular printer.

For a Vietnamese craftsman, creating large-scale wooden replicas of popular cars is purely a hobby. However, over 1.7 million people signed up to the Woodworking Art channel in a year, and there is no doubt that woodworking will soon be able to generate income for the artist.
