Every now and then you see an interesting car that makes you do a double take, you know that Maserati that you can hear a block away or a super fast, brightly colored Lamborghini. It is not very often that a  Volkswagen Beetle will make you turn your head, that is why this one is so amazing.

The iconic car’s body is covered with thousands of tiny pieces of oak, each of which required at least 23 separate procedures before it considered a finished piece of the car.

I absolutely love how intricate the details are. Take a look at the rail that wraps the inside of the windshield frame. Or how about the hand carved wooden stereo knobs?

Being a huge fan of Volkswagen, I would love to see this unique Beetle in person. I would also like to see the process he uses to make each little piece of oak perfect. By the looks of it, this car can withstand the elements just as well as a wooden boat would. He took his time and made sure each and every piece was perfect. What an inspiring guy full of talent and dedication. I love a good DIY project but this one might be just a little out of my skill range. I’m impressed.
