This is my version of the T&J Lattice Boom Crane. It’s the most time consuming and complicated toy I’ve built to date. The complications come not from the many pieces required but the lack of detail and sometimes errors in the T&J drawings. Some trial and error was involved but I’m happy with the final product.
The boom is made of purpleheart and most of the body is sapele. I used Morado for the track pieces because it has some interesting character and is hard as rock. There are a few other species for decoration.
Thanks for looking.
