I have made several of these cranes. One suggestion is replace the lazy Susan with a nylon washer it will shore it up considerably. My wife teaches 3-4 yr olds and the kids love it.

Nothin better than homemade toys that actually work along with some imagination. Kids need more of this kind of hands-on stuff.

Thanks Crowie, I have built several of the construction toys in this series from Wood magazine. My grandson loves them. The crane was pretty easy to make. I didn’t really keep track of my time but I think you could make it in about 6-8 hours. I am disabled and it takes me a long time to get projects completed.
