Putting the Head on the Crane Boom.
The Crane Boom is almost complete.
The crane boom is almost complete! I put off doing the most difficult part, the head or nose of it until last. The reason this part is the most difficult is it narrows in both directions. The base or butt assembly did not get any narrower across the width but did narrow in height to make the hinge point. this was relatively easy because the sticks remained straight and could be glued at angles to each other.
I decided to present this part of the construction in a video because there is a lot to talk about.
The best way to find the previous posts about the crane is to use the tag cloud and click on “Popsicle Construction”.

When I was a kid, a favorite past-time was climbing. I grew up in Vegas (which wasn't much of a city way back when...), so my friends and I would race up palm trees, and we'd play under the bleachers in the local high school. Being idiots -- as all kids are -- we would try to jump off higher and higher things. Finally, one kid jumped off the announcer's booth and broke his leg. But the climbing ... single-file line was stop and go. We had 20 meters to climb to get to a vestibule. At around 10 meters (which took maybe 30 minutes with the line), I started to freak out a little. I don't know if it was the height per se; maybe also a bit of claustrophobia. But by the time we made it up, I was also freaking out about the height.
Since then, I have been a little woozy high up. Weird, huh?
