Ferrari F40 Wooden Sculpture


2 months ago, I presented my work on a 288 GTO 100% hand carved
Today, I add the daughter of the 288: The F40
Always same principe: from a raw piece of wood, I carve the car to obtain what you see on the pictures

Total work duration: 130 hours
This is made from limetree (the 288 in the middle is made of oak, the 288 on the left side is made of badi)

Do not hesitate to ask, I enjoy sharing my passion

Thanks all for your comments

My tools:
- Lots of pictures of the car in order to have a precise idea of the 3D shapes
- Some important views (front, back, profil) with the correct scale
- chisels (I made special tools by grinding to have sharp edges less than 1 mm)
- sand paper (from 60 to 600)
- wax (to give the finished look of the car and to feed the wood) - 4 layers
- and first of all: time lots of time

Each car is really different, for example on the 288, the rear of the car is a mix of curved line in the space. When I had the raw cubic, it was not so easy to remove wood being sure that it wasn't not too much !!
For the F40, the main difficullty I faced to, was to correctly define the front slope of the car with the right location of the headlights (another difficulty was to keep the hollow space under the wing while retaining the massiveness of wood)

When I see all the existing Ferrari, each car will be a new adventure without knowing where will be the difficulties, this is an additionnal motivation to built these cars
