Here are a couple of simple rubber band guns I made with the kids. Made of 2×4 scaps and 1/2” dowels. It was a lot of fun and they had a great time shooting cans with them.

This was a flashback to my fist woodworking projects when I was a kid, they were a lot of fun to make.

Thanks for looking!

When I was a kid we just had a clothespin on a stick to stretch and shoot rubber bands. I can’t imagine how much fun we would have had these! I love any project that involves the kids! Great job!

Thanks everyone, its a simple project to get the kids in the shop with a finished project in a day.

Man if you Google rubber band guns, you will find there has been some crazy new technological advances in this area since I was a kid. Semi auto, fully auto… crazy.

Im lookin forward to setting up the new shop and getting my little guy involved. The stuff you do with your boys is a solid inspiration Mauricio. Shop time with dad has got to be the highlight of the summer!
