Hopefully not the drywall in the ceiling. Those are harder to fix. Don’t ask how i know this.

I made one of these and they are, like, way cool. Next one will be big enough for a small child. ;-)

The largest one ever built was by English King Edward…it was called the Warwolf….we need to call yours the Drywall Dinger.

Good looking trebuchet. If you really want to put holes in the drywall, you can place wheels on the bottom. It makes them throw things a little farther.

YES!!! I SO approve of this! I’ve been wanting to make one of these babies for the last ten years. Could you make a video of it in use and post it on Youtube or something?

What’d you use for counterweights? Mine won’t punch holes in drywall (although we’ve got plaster over button board, which is stronger than your usual ½” drywall, and I need to change that…
