"This is the first time I have ever worked with wood, and boy was it fun. I started by sketching out the design and then slowly drilled away with a dremmel. My goal was to achieve something similar to my cuts pieces but came away with a mushroom looking thingy. Thats why its called fungusamongus. I painted the wheels with light green acrylic and finished them with a high gloss laquer. The body was stained twice and then sanded down to reveal the unstained wood. To finish it and give a it warm gloss I waxed the car a bunch, like for at least three hours." ~mentioned Carson.
