Ferrari wooden sculptures

Hi,

In 2013, I posted a few messages showing my creations in wooden sculpture.

Pictures of the 288 GTO (oak), F40 and Testarossa (limetree) were put on the web
I continue to carve cars. Always the same principle: from a raw piece of wood, I carved first with chisels then with abrasive papers the wood to create the model realised at the wished scale (mainly 1/12 or 1/10)

Everything is done by hand, the time spent for each project is globally the same (120-130 hours)

After the Testarossa , I carved the Enzo (oak - scale 1/10), the 250 GTO (badi - scale 1/12), the Daytona (oak - scale 1/12), Im currently on a 458 (cherry tree scale 1/15) and a Porsche 930 Turbo (redwood scale 1/13)
Soon, chestnut will be carved ...

To see pictures of my creations, please visit :

Thank you

Some real talent there. I like the F-40 a lot. Do you do commissions?

It's a simple process...... it's just complicated by human beings....

Look closely, the 288 GTO has a cracked front spoiler, drivers side.

I wonder if it will buff out?

I might have to take up wood carving classes, those were pretty neat models

Very nice. English version did not work, but the French did.
