Are you retired? Got kids or grand-kids? I guess you do if you're looking in this category. Well, you found an excellent project to build in this toy crane. Another excellent free woodworking plan from Shopsmith.
The free plan includes five pages of detailed instructions that guide you through each step of the process. In addition to the detailed written instructions, Norm Marshall and the guys at Shopsmith have also provided detailed layouts for most of the pieces.
I think it would be interesting if someone would try to upscale this project and make it larger. Also, try putting more variety into the wood that you use. I think it would make this free woodworking project even better. I'll put this one in the easy or medium difficulty level. Especially if you have some experience in woodworking.
