Trebuchet plans and images

Trebuchet plans and images

A couple years ago Clara and I (she was three) went into the garage to build a trebuchet (here’s the original video).  If you don’t know what that is, it’s like a catapult, with a little sling action.  I put together plans before starting and just found them for a friend.  Here they are, including the (photo) shopping list you can take to Lowe’s with you to get the parts and build your own.  The PDF is to print and cut then use to draw your cut lines on the standing supports.  If you end up building one then come post a link to your photos/videos in the comments below.
