OMG It's A Box Full Of Money! Hey, Wait A Second ...

Randall Rosenthal sure has a way with wood.

An artist based in Long Island, N.Y., Rosenthal has become something of an online sensation, thanks to his jaw-dropping wood sculptures depicting objects one typically associates with being flimsy: newspapers, baseball cards and, perhaps most famously of all, money.

This week, a sculpture created by Rosenthal in 2011 of a cardboard box chock-full of cash has gone viral. "I had to pick my jaw up from the floor after I saw what this woodworker did," one stunned Twitter user wrote after seeing photographs of Rosenthal's incredible creation.

Scroll down to see it the evolution of the sculpture -- from a block of wood to a finished product so real we want to reach out and grab it.
