Wood has an interesting history in vehicles worldwide. It used to be the standard for truck beds and boxes; but in modern times its been replaced by steal, or more recently aluminum, as manufacturers strive for efficiency and strength.

Attention to detail lives on! In a world of big corporations its so nice to see bespoke adaptations - after all, that's how motoring started.

It's certainly nice to see real craftsmanship and love going into these creations, especially in an age when wood in vehicles has been reduced to tacky trim and gear knobs. It would appear that wood does have a place in modern day vehicles and it's a thing of real beauty.
