Please see the edit for a measurement mistake I made. Sorry guys… I’m full of type o’s.
Scrap wood project… Christmas Gift for the kids
I built these using a photo I saw on line. I had to guess at the measurements. I think they turned out ok!
Our 6 year old twin Grandchildren will have fun Catapulting ping pong balls at each other or playing a game of trying to get them into a bucket. It’s a simple to make toy. I used up some wood scraps laying around the shop and found some ping pong balls at the Dollar Tree store. 4 packs of 8 balls =32 for $4 bucks, this should keep them busy for a while!
All comments good or bad welcome! Thanks for looking!
PS.. Those small bungee cords work well too! See them in the last picture.
It was bought to my attention that I left out the measurement for the axle. From the top of the uprights measure down 3 1/2” and attach it there. I also fixed the measurement on the plan.
