G-Picket? View a Mercedes-AMG G63 Painstakingly Crafted From Wood

Nowadays we have a video of Mercedes’ inimitable G63 AMG SUV staying made from a few boards of Fujian cypress. But this isn’t just any outdated video of Mercedes’ inimitable G63 AMG SUV becoming made from a couple boards of Fujian cypress: This anonymous woodworker, whose talent is clearly matched only by his obsessive-compulsive tendencies, has created what may perhaps be the ideal toy car or truck at any time. No, definitely, trust us.

The movie starts off out as all the things you imagined you could hope for in a car or truck-from-wood film, with heaps of manly sawing and routing and chiseling and banging of wood blocks on metallic function surfaces. You may get about three-and-a-50 percent minutes in and assume, “Ok, neat, I have seen how he does this. I get that he went all nerdy turning miniature brake disks and detailing the engine bay and carving out interior doorway panels comprehensive with electric power seat controls. What could quite possibly fill up a different six minutes?”

And which is when the artist starts to develop the G63’s body with a absolutely working and precisely modeled suspension. A-arms and all—remember, the most recent G ditched its are living front axle for a extra fashionable and certainly extra hard-to-recreate-from-wooden independent format.

Of course, that’s right—A-arms, springs, shocks, and a turned driveline, all produced of wood. Properly, not all produced of wood—there are some steel bits, specifically the springs, mainly because picket springs aren’t extremely springy (we know this from the YouTuber’s previously F-150 Raptor design).
