Latest completed project. From Toys and Joys Construction Crane plan. Made from white oak and walnut. I recommend this build for anyone wanting to try their hand in making toys. As always comments good or bad are welcome.

This is a nice model of a crane. It displays a lot of details and craftsmanship.

You’ve done a great job, S’h’T’M (sorry, sometimes my abbreviations may lead to crappy results). I’ll use SouthATM next time… you can bank on that.

The only criticism I could possibly make is a little more exercise on the shutter button of your camera.

Jokes aside, keep up the great work and postings.

Nice job, I started something like this some time back. Sits on a shelf for a restart someday. Tires are made too.

I don’t usually look at the wooden trucks. This gives me a new appreciation for the work and skill involved. Thanks for posting.
