Stanley Steamer model. I’m fascinated with these brass era cars. Body is Bloodwood, and curly maple stand with cherry frame. The tires are katalox (no paint), wheels are painted, springs are walnut dipped in a vinegar / steel wool solution to ebonize. Some copper and brass covered pieces. The Stanley logo on the front is a thin strip of brass cut with a scroll blade on the band saw. The seats are pine upholstered with a piece of scrap leather and brass pins. Plans are from Forest Street Designs but with some of my own preferences.
Thank you for taking a look and appreciate your comments and suggestions.
