Based on a project by a fellow LJ member (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/18854), I decided to take on the catapult project for my nephew this past week. About 6 ft of 2×4 and an hour of work, and viola! BOMBS AWAY!

Hey, that’s really cool. I remember having to make them in the 6th grade but they did not have bungie cords back in 1954!

How far does it throw stuff?

My nephew would love this, but his dad wouldn’t.

I agree with BarryW. LJ’ers need to get together and make the world’s best Punkin' Chunkin' machine.
