Well, he’s back, and this time he’s not only created a Cybertruck, he’s also knocked up a Cyberquad for his son, too.
WATCH DAD BUILD WOODEN CYBERTRUCK AND CYBERQUAD IN 100 DAYS:
Made entirely out of wood sitting on a welded metal chassis, the Youtuber’s Cybertruck is one of his biggest builds yet.
Okay, it may be a tad smaller than the original EV pickup, but it comes with all the bells and whistles.
There’s not just one but two sets of opening doors, functional headlights and taillights, positionable rear view mirrors, and a rear truck bed that opens.
Mr Dao even carved the X logo onto the driver’s door, filling it with epoxy resin and adding lights inside to make the logo glow when the EV’s lights are switched on.
But the icing on the cake has to be the functional Cyberquad in the back, which looks just like the one Elon Musk showcased back in November 2019.
To hold the Cyberquad, at the back of the Cybertruck is a load-bearing bed and a tailgate that opens up, turning into a telescopic ramp that lets you roll the quad out.
Mr Dao’s no stranger to creating functional wood automobiles that not only feature opening doors and turning wheels – they have engines, brakes, batteries, and even lights inside them.
But what’s really remarkable is that the YouTuber created the masterpieces in just 100 days, culminating in one of the sweetest finales, as father and son ride together on the road in the Cybertruck and the Cyberquad.
The entire process began with a meticulous planning phase, followed by building the Cybertruck’s chassis out of metal piping welded together.
Whereas the original Cybertruck has a space-grade metal body that doubles itself as its chassis, Mr Dao wasn’t able to do that with wooden sheets.
Instead, the entire car sits on a metal skeleton of sorts, which also houses the car’s electric powertrain.
With the chassis complete, ND Woodworking Art began layering it with wood planks, cutting them, angling them, and nailing/glueing them in place.
Almost every inch of the car is covered in wood, from the outside to even the inside.
The rear gets lined with darker wood, as does the car’s interior cockpit and dashboard, featuring light wood seats and a red wood ‘Yoke’ steering wheel.
Mr Dao then added the finishing touches to his homemade Cybetruck, adding a clear sheet on the front as a windshield, along with a functional wiper.
Tinted plastic sheets were then added to the top, giving the car a shaded skylight.
The front of the Cybertruck features the classic linear headlight along with a set of indicators, and the rear gets the linear tailight to match.
Finally, as a homage to Musk, the YouTuber also embeds an ‘X’ logo into the driver’s door, which lights up on command.
