The Wooden Model Design store in Vietnam has crafted a beautiful wooden Olympus camera. Better yet, the camera accepts wooden interchangeable lenses.
The camera is a wooden replica of the Olympus OM-1 film camera, complete with operational dials and levers. It features intricate detail, and accents and logos appear to be applied using wood-burning techniques. The included detachable lens is a Zuiko 50mm F1.8. The total cost for the package worked out to around $35 USD.
The Wooden Model Design store has crafted many other wooden cameras, including a Sony A1 and FE 35mm F1.4 GM lens for a customer in the US, which you can see below. The A1 cost around $70 USD after currency conversion, which seems like a very fair price for a hand-crafted item like this.

The shop has also crafted a wooden Nikon F model, a vintage Argus C3 camera, an old Hasselblad 500C/M medium format camera and even a Sony FS7 Mark II cinema camera. Beyond photography items, the shop has built model cars and motorcycles, plus more.
