Trương Văn Đạo is a Vietnam-based woodworking artist who is the founder of the workshop, ND Woodworking Art.
He is known for making all kinds of incredible wooden replicas of items such as cars, phones, etc. – all using discarded wood.
But perhaps his most impressive work is his most recent car replica of the $28-million limited-edition Rolls-Royce Boat Tail. This car is one of the most strongly desired cars in the world, and Đạo has wowed the internet with his own wooden version.
However, this incredible work of art is reserved for Đạo’s most important client: his son. That is correct, Đạo made the miniature version of the Rolls-Royce into a fully functional toy car for his son.
He created the body of the convertible car using wood, including the interior seats, headrests, and a dashboard. All of it is made entirely from wood! Then he added in some other functional features such as a real glass windshield, blue-colored headlights and taillights, and a battery-powered motor for the engine!
This stunningly handcrafted car allows his son to go for chill drives around the neighborhood – no doubt being the envy of all the other kids.
Lastly, Đạo made sure that the wooden Rolls-Royce also includes the “RR” logo beneath the grill, as well as the Spirit of Ecstasy statuette on the hood of the car.
And much like the car’s real-life counterpart, Đạo’s wood version also has a working Boat Tail butterfly trunk. Đạo’s car also opens up to reveal glassware, an umbrella, and some kid-friendly mocktails to add to the sense of luxury.
Đạo’s project took him a total of 68 days to complete – a labor of love that was squeezed in between his day job with Google. There is no doubt just how much he loves his son. Absolutely heartwarming!
