Elon Musk responds to man who spent $15,000 making a fully functional Cybertruck out of wood

Elon Musk responds to man who spent $15,000 making a fully functional Cybertruck out of wood

The wooden Cybertruck is a real thing of beauty.

Cybertrucks are well-known for their stainless steel exoskeleton - who among us hasn't seen the videos of people shooting bullets at the truck, barely making a dent?

But now, the Cybertruck has been given a remarkably different look, and has been crafted entirely out of wood.

And would you believe it, but the wooden Cybertruck actually works.

It was built by the brains behind the YouTube channel ND - Woodworking Art, who describe themselves as a 'father and son duo crafting stunning wooden cars that combine artistry with functionality'.

It's quite a feat of engineering.

Other wooden vehicles the duo have created include sports cars, motorbikes and even a tank.

The YouTube video - which has racked up over 2.5 million views since it was posted at the end of October - follows 100 days of building the Cybertruck out of wood.

It's a truly mind-blowing expression of craftsmanship - and it would seem like the YouTubers are big Tesla fans.

Along with the video is an open letter to Elon Musk which reads:

"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 maintain your position in the international arena."

The open letter and images of the wooden Cybertruck were posted to X - the social media platform Musk owns - and the man himself even replied.

Musk wrote: "Sure, much appreciated," followed by a heart emoji.

This obviously thrilled the YouTubers, who replied: "I am truly delighted to hear your compliments, please let me know how I can send a wooden replica of the Cybertruck to you."

It's such an homage to Musk, there's even the 'X' logo emblazoned on the door.

No word yet if Musk actually has received the wooden truck, but people have been quick to praise the creation.

"His building skills are amazing. His craftsmanship is top notch," one person wrote underneath the YouTube video.

"If you sold this thing as an entire puzzle, I would buy it. You guys make it look easy to build," another said, while one added: "Cant start to think about the insane amount of measurements that went into this project... This is sooo cool to watch and nothing short of superb."

Many others had the same idea when comparing it to the original model.

"This is gonna give the original Cybertruck a run for their money," one YouTuber wrote, and another suggested it was "even better than the original".
