Not certain the tyres would grip well in the wet.

Scandinavian is the choice of supplier I use they can make some amazing curved glulam in massive sections for commercial projects with high exposed ceilings like auditoriums

Timber is also a better performer in fire as it's charred surface protects the core, in steel framed buildings you have to coat it in layers of expensive intumescent paint, which guess what, in a fire expands and chars to protect it - clever stuff timber

I have a friend who had to meet with Colonel Gaddafi in his compound some years ago as he wanted to start an automotive industry. He wanted a car designing made from wood which needed to be pointed like a pencil. He demonstrated that if two pencils are pushed into each other, the points will cause the pencils to deflect away from each other so if cars were designed in the same way there would be no issues in the event of a crash. He also wanted leather bags to be hung around the outside of the car to provide further protection to pedestrians and the occupants.

Strangely enough, my friend declined the contract, but only once he had got back home.

And some still claim he was sane

That’s a bit different

Don’t know whether I like it though, doesn’t look like a low sports car. Looks a bit high in the body

Price is good though


You could whittle it down to size. Make for a fun winter project.
