A few days ago, we reported that a father and son duo had built an incredible Cybertruck replica made out of wood. The YouTube channel behind the project ND - Woodworking Art documented the entire build process and shared it in a video titled “100 Days Building Tesla Cybertruck For Mr. Elon Musk.”
In the video, we can see the artist first build a frame for the vehicle by welding steel however, every part after that except for the windows and lights was completed out of wood.
This includes everything from the entire exoskeleton, functional tailgate, and interior liner. Even the Cybertruck’s angular seats were chiseled out of wood.

The entire process was a testament to human ingenuity and the video has currently amassed over three hundred thousand views. Although exciting, for a few days now, the artist behind the project was unable to achieve his primary goal which was to reach Elon Musk.
That’s at least until today, ND - WoodArt wrote a long letter asking people to help him reach Elon Musk. The letter read…
Please help me send this letter to Mr. Elon Musk and Tesla 🙏Dear Mr. Elon Musk, I am a passionate content creator with a deep love for wooden vehicles and a tremendous admiration for both you and Tesla. Over the years, I've embarked on several wooden car projects to gain valuable experience. And today I launched a car that I am very impressed with, the Cybertruck. It is also the car that many of my audiences love and want me to build.
I am aware that Tesla has faced its share of challenges in bringing the Cybertruck to fruition. However, I maintain unwavering faith in your vision and the capabilities of Tesla. I am confident that this extraordinary vehicle will ultimately succeed.
I hope to have the honor of gifting this wooden Cybertruck to you and Tesla and wish you and Tesla continued success and to maintain your position in the international arena.
To the artist's surprise, not only did Musk see his post but decided to respond agreeing to the artist’s request saying “Sure, much appreciated ❤️”
After Musk gave the love back, the artist responded by saying “I am truly delighted to hear your compliments, please let me know how I can send a wooden replica of the Cybertruck to you ❤️”
Sure, much appreciated ❤️

The love was flowing back and forth and after this text exchange the two individuals haven’t posted anything public but it appears that they are working on the logistics to be able to ship the wooden Cybertruck to Elon Musk.
This is a truly inspiring story and a testament to the dedication and strength of the Tesla community. Personally, if Musk is able to get the Cybertruck replica in time, I would hope Tesla is able to display it during the November 30 Cybertruck delivery event.
Currently, this is all the information we’ve regarding the status of the wooden Cybertruck replica. However, we’ll be sure to keep you posted if we get further information regarding the Cybertruck replica or the actual vehicle.
Until then, make sure to visit our site torquenews.com/Tesla regularly for the latest updates.
So what do you think? Excited to learn that Elon Musk will now be the owner of the wooden Cybertruck replica? Do you think Tesla should feature the vehicle during the Cybertruck delivery event? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
