Car Made from Wood

After two years of hard graft and spending thousands of pounds, expert cabinet-maker Mike Morris has finished a car made from mahogany (a type of wood).

Mike, 50, from Thornton, got the idea for his timber triumph after seeing a similar car in a trade magazine 30 years ago. His wooden beauty is capable of reaching 40mph (64 km/h).

Mike, who left his full-time job as a cabinet maker now buys and sells houses for a living, hopes the money raised by selling the car will finance his next project – a wooden truck.
