Carving Wood


Guy Carves Arnold Schwarzenegger In Iconic Pose Out Of Wood

September 16, 2018

A man spent the last 6 months getting to know the curves of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s younger body pretty well. 

Wood carving artist James O’Neal recently completed one of his most impressive pieces of work to date. O’Neal debuted his finished life-size wooden sculpture of Arnold Schwarzenegger in the iconic vacuum pose. 

The sculpture stands at the same height as Schwarzenegger at 6’2. O’Neal posted pictures of his progress over the past 6 months on Instagram. This isn’t the first celebrity O’Neal’s carved out of wood; he’s done Conor McGregor, Muhammad Ali, and Floyd Mayweather as well. 

Check out his finished product down below. The face is pretty accurate. 

The Austrian Oak is complete after 6 months work. It will be heading to GrandRapids, Michigan next month for the Artprize contest. Next March it will be on display in booth #1551 at the @arnoldsports festival in Columbus, Ohio where Arnold himself will see it in person. #arnoldschwarzenegger #austrianoak #schwarzenegger #arnold #mrolympia #ifbbpro #bodybuilder #woodcarving #tbe #woodworking #sculpted #shredded #wip
