no previous part Part 1 of Lattice boom crane (Toys and Joys) series Part 2: Tracks continuation »

I started with a new T and J project. A lattice boom crane. I first wanted to make a intarsia coon, but the patterns are not yet arrived. Therefore, an interruption is possible when the patterns arrive.

Below pictures of making the raw tracks.

Thanks for watching

I agree with crowie. It’s pretty cool to watch your builds. Plenty of pictures and explanations make it easy to follow what’s going on.

I sure enjoy seeing how all these small parts are made Jan. You are very creative in the way you do them and you always get such accurate and perfect results. I love complicated things made with wood and all the details that it takes to make and assemble them. Your blogs are very inspiring.

Been thinking real hard about building one of their toys.
So your how toe’s are very interesting in a German accent.

Dutchy Hi!
You may not remember or even heard of it but years ago there was a tv show called Laugh In
One of the cast would go around saying ” Very Interesting” in a German accent after some silly joke or skit it was pretty funny back then. One of them, had to be there deals I guess. Sorry!!!

But thanks for the tips will be using them shortly me thinks.
I’m wanting to build the bull dozier more for making the tracks than any thing else.
