Every now and then, when Hubs had a day off that is not spoken for with other commitments/odd jobs/art projects our fort gets a new addition. Roofs, doors, random steering wheels, and finally the other day, a crane!
I can't tell you how excited the boys were about this. Hubs put it together up in the garage/shop and then brought it down an installed it in the fort.
Its one of Hubs classic made-from-some-junk-I-found-lying-around specials.
And the pulley is made from, oh I don't know, some random pulley that Hubs found in a junk yard somewhere? And I realize that I don't have a good picture of the seat, but I believe that it is a stripped down skate deck that was lying around.
