Peirce Arrow circa 1911. Walnut body with Rosewood trim. Top is light unfinished cherry and cedar. Wheels are maple and olive spokes. Seats are butternut. bloodwood steering wheel. Lights are wood dowels with copper veneer and wire. Radiator is maple with copper veneer. Not very many straight or flat parts on this model, lots of compound curves to fit. The Archer hood ornament is ebony with applied copper. Cut it out with a scroll blade on a band saw. The Pierce logo on the front of the radiator was a paper print bonded to brass and then cutout and applied.
Made an extra wheel since the spokes are pretty fragile until glued into the wheels, but none broke this time!
Thanks for looking and comments are always appreciated.

Outstanding. I have built a lot of model/toys over the years. You sir make all my stuff look like a grade schooler had made them. There is absolutely no doubt your work is the best I have ever seen. I have thought it before with a number of your posted projects, but this Peirce Arrow takes the cake. Just outstanding, the only adjective I can come up with.

Thanks Brian but you are a bit modest, your models and turnings are truly exceptional.

Very impressive 0001...

Have admired your models over the past but was apprehensive with the ”brass” accoutrements… The ”copper veneer” has really piqued my interest… Any blogs on how you performed that Midas touch?

Tim, That’s another extraordinary model sir. So much fine detail, your craftsmanship is exemplary.
The timber mix is a beautiful contrast.

Outstanding, but then I would expect nothing less coming from your shop. I am amazed at how you out-do yourself every time. I wait with anticipation when you have not posted a project for a while. I know something good is coming. Keep up the good work.
