Russian carpenter Yuri Hvtisishvili created this awesome life-size wooden replica of the classic classic IL-49 Soviet motorcycle. It looks so perfect that, were it not for the telltale color, it’s hard to believe the bike is completely made of wood, even the tires. The project began ealier this year when business was slow at Yuri’s carpentry shop and he wanted to try something new. Inspired by an internet post about a master carpenter’s full-scale wooden replica of a motorcycle, he decided to create a replica of his favorite Russian motorcycle, the IL-49.
"Yuri started to work on the project on January 18; it was the perfect activity to pass his time during the long winter evenings. He patiently carved out the motorcycle one part at a time, down to the last nut and bolt. He made use of two types of wood – beech and pine – mainly for the way they complement each other. Four months later, on May 18, the hyperrealistic motorcycle was completed."
“My point is not to make money,” Baronet said. “Material stuff isn’t my sort of thing. My point is to put the art out there. My point is to start conversations and raise awareness. My point is to keep learning about me. And that’s a selfish point.”
