A man spent three months creating a six-wheel Rolls-Royce – entirely out of wood – for his young son. 

The 120-day labor of love saw the dad hand-craft countless pieces of wood, transforming them into a fully-drivable six-wheeler. 

In a video shared to his ND Woodworking Art YouTube channel, you can see the man start out with the floor of the vehicle, which is reinforced with a metal chassis, before adding axels, a motor, and a steering rack.

He then takes a bunch of wooden blocks and places them onto a large Rolls-Royce-shaped cut-out so he can mark up where to cut.

Several trips to the jigsaw later, and the car starts to take shape – specifically, the shape of a Rolls-Royce. 

He enlists the help of a chainsaw for the finer details and adds in some windows, headlights, and grill.

With the outside taken care of, he turns his attention to the inside where he, once again, painstakingly hand-crafts a dashboard – complete with speedometer and dials – as well as a center console, seats, and even air vents. 

He adds some final flourishes, including license plates, a Rolls-Royce badge, and, of course, the Spirit of Ecstasy sculpture on the bonnet. 

One hundred and twenty days after he started, the car is finished and looks amazing.

Not only that, but it can actually drive as he demonstrates by taking his young son out for a spin. 

The man hasn’t just made a wooden Rolls-Royce

This is not the first impressive project we’ve seen from ND Woodworking Art – he’s previously hit headlines for making a fully-drivable wooden Cybertruck, which caught the eye of Elon Musk

Sharing a video of the car on X, he wrote: “I am aware that Tesla has faced its share of challenges in bringing the Cybertruck to fruition. However, I maintain unwavering faith in your vision and the capabilities of Tesla.

“I hope to have the honor of gifting this wooden Cybertruck to you and Tesla, to wish you and Tesla continued success and maintain your position in the international arena.”

Musk then responded: “Sure, much appreciated.”

He’s also made a fully functioning Mercedes-AMG G63, which was built over a Mitsubishi Pajero. 

He also spent 68 days building his son a Rolls-Royce Boat Tail – that’s one lucky little boy.

What do you reckon? ‘Wood’ you like to take a drive in one of his creations?
