Woodworker Frank Howarth is celebrating Star Wars Day in a very awesome way indeed, because he made this amazing wood Death Star. You can check out a video of him making the entire thing much faster than the Empire made theirs. This handcrafted wooden Death Star really is a masterpiece.
You can check out a video of him making the entire thing much faster than the Empire made theirs. After you watch all of the work that went into making this thing, you can’t help but be in awe of his woodworking skills. It is hard to believe, but it is all made from flat pieces of bamboo. He built it up by creating rings of wood which he stacked and glued together, then shaved it all smooth on a lathe.
The finished product is beautiful and full of gorgeous detail, and I’d love to own a piece of art like this. It is now the ultimate (wood) power in the universe. I just hope it doesn’t have an exhaust port.
