Cars Made Of Wood

Betty, an Eagle America customer service representative writes:

When I go on vacation, I am always on the look out for new and different woodworking projects.

I never expected to find a complete “car” made out of wood, but I did.

My husband and I ran across this beautiful example of woodworking  at The Pioneer Auto Show, in Murdo, South Dakota.

I can only imagine how many hours it took to build this car, let alone, the amount of router bits, table saw blades and band saw blades the builder had to go through.

When I got back from vacation, I wanted to see if I could find any more examples of cars made out of wood.

To my surprise, there are a lot more woodworkers building cars out of wood than I realized.

Below are just a few more examples I found on to web.

Woodworker or not these cars are worth checking out!

    Are these real cars? I mean that one can drive them. I guess too that it takes long time to build them. Here one war veteran has made church models (about 40) from matches and he has been making one church during eight months or more and he has time to work with one project round the clock. Of course I have photos in my blog.

    Back to Your post I am really glad when seeing these. They are so gorgeous.

    Thank You.

      These are real cars that can be driven on the road.

    Another car made out of wood is the Splinter, made by Joe Harmon for his college thesis. He has a website, http://www.joeharmondesign.com, that you can check out. Everything about this car is made out of wood, except, of course, the engine. You can’t have an internal combustion engine made out of wood! Paul
