Wood artist Martin Creaney has recreated the Millennium Falcon using over 3000-pieces of timber. It measures in at around 6-feet-long and is comprised of 30 different varieties of wood. For those unfamiliar with this craft, the highly modified Corellian Engineering Corporation (CEC) YT-1300 light freighter first appears in Star Wars (1977), and subsequently in The Empire Strikes Back (1980), Return of the Jedi (1983) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015).

The ship also makes a brief cameo appearance in Revenge of the Sith (2005). Additionally, the Falcon appears in a variety of Star Wars expanded universe materials, including books, comics, and games; James Luceno’s novel Millennium Falcon focuses on the titular ship.
