my buddies Son had a 2yr birthday today. the buddy is a crane operator at their families crane business, so I knew someday I would make them a crane toy. I started last night, a little late, but finished up without a finish on it in about 4 hrs. raided the scrap bin abd used mostly hard maple. stole a hinge for the boom from a case of router bits, and scavenged the spool from the wife’s sewing room.
the kid liked it, but everybody else thought it was great too.
I just hate going to a kids birthday party and seeing duplicate gifts from walmart or target all the time. or something that takes 8 AA batteries….
