Tower Crane I built 3 years ago and never got added to my projects.

This was my fourth toy build after I got my shop set up and got back into toy making after many many years.

The build blog is here.

This was my first try at making fancy wooden wheels.

Better late than never on the posting.

It’s always good to personalize the build to create more interest for yourself as you build the toy…top one!!

Now that’s the #4 I got to know… the pink basket!... it never complained about the weather…

Nice to know you still retained your wheel making skills all those years ago.
