just be complete if you want some help

-what material do you want to use? (pvc or metal)
-do you want to make a piston or QEV or sprinkler maybe just a ball valve or something else?
-what pressure are you thinking of ?
-do you want a simple design or make it like a sniper ?

I would say focus on a combustion for your first cannon. They are simple to make and it gives you a pretty god idea on the basics.

For future reference...most of them members here don't like it when you ask how especially when you ask for plans. The current mode of thinking is if you can't figure out how to make it by whats on the site already you shouldn't be making it...

Basically you should give Bigbob a huge pat on the back for helping you out 8)....

Here are some messy paint pics of simple cannons that he may want to build
first one is a pvc one but he mentuioned high pressure so...
and if you really want i guess you could use a ball valve instead of a sprinkler
Here it is

and the second one is a copper one just incase you dont have acsess to pvc or want to go high pressure
Image
