This is a .54 caliber shootable black powder canon. My own design. The barrel is alittle over 7” wood is walnut with a varathane finish. I’ll post some pictures and a short video of it’s first shot.
I like mixing wood and metal working. I turned and bored the barrel on my old Atlas metal lathe that my wife bought me. It was a fun little project that I completed in one evening, typically I have more than one project on the go at the same time, so when one part is glueing or drying, I move on to the other project, and back and forth.
