I finished this wooden replica of Circa 1750 a week ago and then I started making its stand and finished it today. Woodturning, scroll saw work and pyrography were involved in this project. All parts of the cannon were printed on an A4 page, but I enlarged it 3.5 time by hand (not by copy machine ) before started cutting and turning. I enjoyed creating it so much I may start working on a larger scale soon. Now, it is your turn to enjoy reviewing it. Thank you. About 380 mm long.

That is real great replica Sam, everything about it looks like the real thing. Nice smooth finish also. Look forward to seeing a larger version.

Outstanding Sam, your attention to detail is awesome.
Thanks for sharing this with us.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

I wish you could have been with me last week when I toured the kremlin. They had a lot of old cannons, some very ornate. Nice job.
