When many people think about wooden vehicles, they don't think high performance. They think about a canoe made of a hollowed-out log or a rickety wagon made of nailed-together planks. The Splinter, an ultra-high performance, wooden car, is not made using these construction techniques. Essentially every part on the Splinter is made of composites. Composites like carbon fiber and fiberglass have been seen on cars for decades, but a car using wood composites to the extent that the Splinter does has never been built. Although molding composites is probably the single biggest part of what we do, building a car from the ground up involves a huge range of processes.

This section outlines the processes we use to build the Splinter, which involve wood, metal, foam or even glass.
