THE BIG GUN is a wooden replica of a 40 cm long metal cannon we have for sometimes. I had to modify few things during the process like burning the side design instead of carving it and designing my own barrel rest which was straight bolt. My barrel rest helps keeping the barrel in the middle all the time, as in photo 3. Also, I wrapped the wheels with veneer to enhance them. photo 5 shows all the parts of the cannon. Photo 6 shows the original metal gun and my wooden one.

Really unique! The wheels are intriguing to me as to how you did it on such a small scale. BTW, I got a bang out of the cannon. lol
