Looks great. I’m sure your grandson will play with it for hours. Suggestion: try attaching a magnet to the end of the string. Kids enjoy picking up things with magnets.

You can learn a lot building wooden toys.
Great build.
How long did you play with it before you gave it away???

A great present for the grandson I am sure he will love it.

What do you use to keep the strings from unwinding when the knob is let go? Friction?

These protruding handle pins are engaged in half-deep 1/4-inch holes drilled in the cab side, acting as stops to hold the boom and hook in position during play.
