This is a great looking toy crane. As always you do such a good job with these projects. The details on the piece are just outstanding.

What woods did you use in the construction? Walnut and maple, would be my guess.

At this rate you are going to end up with your own construction fleet.

Keep the posts coming. These are really wonderful pieces.

I build scale models and collect die cast, and this is one of the coolist things I have ever seen! Excellent detail…I love this. Great job.

What a complicated piece of work you have done. I have no words to praise it. The wheels appealed to me very much. Many more pictures would have revealed the intricacy of the toy crane.

WoW – that is a detailed crane. Really nice job – looks like it could start working with some little people at the controls.
