This is a crane made of pine and rosewood. The finish is mylands sanding sealer. the boom and lift cable are operated by pulling out the crank handles and moving the crank pin to the next hole in the cab body. The cab body rotates 360 degrees. The plan is an old shopsmirh plan I found on the internet.

Well done! Congrats from me as well. I also had found the plan on the web a while ago but did not have the time to build it, yet. Now seeing the photos I might give it a try
