I saw this plan in a copy of Wood Magazine (I think) and thought it was too cool not to build. Its a mini fully functional Trebuchet. And it can hurl dog treats accross my kitchen quite nicely!

If I built one of those, my kids would be hurling M&M’s around the house.

Now that looks like a lot of fun, and I don’t mean just as a project. :)

Here’s a link for the trebuchet plans ($2.95)

I’ve built many trebs, from desktop size to about 11 feet tall with the arm upright, Also built catapults, ballistas, onagers, etc. Love those siege weapons !
