YouTuber Woodworking Art has been carving out impressively realistic car recreations from blocks of wood for some time now, with a collection including a number of Blue Oval products such as a 2020 Ford Ranger Raptor with a working suspension, another Ranger Raptor with a host of “modifications,” and a 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 as well. Now, the talented woodworker is back with yet another cool wooden creation that replicates a 2013 Ford Mustang GT.
As is always the case, Woodworking Art starts off with a normal old block of wood and a photo of a 2013 Ford Mustang. From there, he draws out the basic shape of the car and makes a few cuts with a bandsaw to create the rough outline of the modern pony car. That includes the roofline and wheel wells, after which he cuts out a set of four wheels and doors that will be used to put it all together.
Now, it’s time to pick up the router to cut out the interior of the Mustang and make room for the wheels and tires. Little by little, the project comes together and our resident woodworker smooths things out, making it look more like an actual car with each pass of his various tools. The real magic comes from the little details, however, which include things like the tiny door handles and rather realistic interior and engine bay.
With the hood made, Woodworking art sketches out the car’s 5.0L Coyote V8, which is then chiseled into existence. Eventually, all of the individual components are made and stained, and he can start the final process of putting it all together. As is usually the case, this Mustang has a functional steering wheel and suspension, with wheels and tires that roll and doors, a hood, and a trunk lid that open. This cool ride even has brake calipers and 5.0 badges, once again showing off the supreme talent of our resident woodworker.
