36 in of 2 by 4 for the cumbustion chamber
13 inches of 2 by 4 for the base
and finally 12 deck screws and a few dozen trim nails as well as some good old duct tape to attach the barrel to the chamber

You can tell how awesome a cannon is by the pressure used.

Hell, wrap it in some duct tape and it'll be fine. Great work!

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

Oh I know! Make a super dodgy scope out of a few magnifying glasses taped to the barrel, tape a flashlight to it, make a coathanger wire bipod, add a laser pointer (MUST BE SECURED USING CLEAR TAPE AS MESSILY AS POSSIBLE) and perhaps a muzzle break made of cardboard. :D

Tactical wooden cannon!

Gratuitous foot shot there... :wink:

Uummm it's ghetto alright...almost too much precision work though on that barrel compared to the absolute lack of any on the combustion chamber. A little forced ghettoness there IMO... :roll: There needs to be some effort at real construction techniques without actually hitting them correctly...does that make sense. :?:

Hey man, at least the barrel is pretty cool. Why not try the same with the combustion chamber? maybe some good stain? Its a start...

I don't know why but i like it :)

Maybe worth making a "proper" one, correctly joined and finished, maybe with a touch of varnish :D

That occurred to me as well. Forget ghetto...build a nice 8 sided wooden chamber and maybe add some barrel staves around it.

:) Gotta say, the barrel look would be very cool. All it takes it a little time a pride, and this thing would look good over a fireplace :P
