« Part 11: Drum housing Part 12 of Lattice boom crane (Toys and Joys) series Part 13: Boom continuing »

Today there was time to do some building of my boom crane. I strarted with the boom. The boom is the last time-consuming part to made. After the boom is ready there are only small parts to make. Below pictures off the process.














Thanks for watching.

Man this is going to be one nice crane!!!
Using your sander for a miter saw really gives some clean joints.

Looking Good Dutchy, Going to be a very nice build
I got the rear fenders on today and only then did I realize I have the grain going the wrong way! Not sure what I am going to do about that maybe nothing!
But if I ever build another I can tell you it will be going the other way! Looks not too good.

Nice work Jan. I liked the way you used washers to center the the thinner internal supports. Very smart and easy.

Dutchy I just went out and looked at mine again the extension section you are putting in yours is going to be just awesome. You have just set the bar higher for the rest of us. Well Done my friend.
