Amazing Sight, Mahogany Rolls Royce

For the past three years my father and I have made the wooden trophy bases for the St. Michaels Concours De Elegance, a classic car show in St. Michaels MD, and each year we attend the show. This Rolls Royce was a 20 year project for the owner and the craftsmen. I think this just goes to show that the possibilities are endless when wood gets into gifted hands. I go back and forth on this when I look at these pictures, sometimes it inspires me to learn and try to get better and others it makes you wonder how someone could accomplish something so spectacular.

I hope it provides some inspiration for you!

That is the most amazing car I have ever seen. Awesome. I dread to think how much it cost to make.

This tops that splinter car I think. Those fenders must have months of work in them.

Now that redefines “COOL!” Mahogany has always been my favorite wood. The work in this car is ridiculous. Amazing craftsmanship. Have any of you seen this one It was featured in an article in either Popular Woodworking, or it may have been American Woodworker, several months back. Both are incredible. I have to say that personally, I prefer this Rolls.
