Line Mar Match Box Construction 051 - Trapeze

I found a Line Mar Match Box Construction Set from the 1930s, complete and with instructions. The box claimed the set made 100 different toys. I decided to test that claim -- one toy at a time. You can read all the posts for the Line Mar construction project at 100 Toys.

051. Trapeze

The trapeze had one major challenge -- and it's one I've had to deal with before. Stacking  one long dowel atop another isn't very stable, even with a wooden collar spanning the joint. Fortunately, those dowels didn't have to support a lot of weight. 

I also didn't get the "rope" as long as it in the illustration, but after fiddling with the dowels for over a half hour, I went with what I had.
