Lol, nice....cannon? If I was the enemy, I dont know whether I should run or laugh, the thing is so tiny, it could almost be considered "cute". But nice anyway.

I was bored for the past 15 minutes so I decided to make a short tutorial on how to add images (or other files with .ace, .gtar, .gz, .rar, .tar, .zip, .swf, .gif .jpeg, .jpg, .png, .tga or .tif extensions).

By the way, the pictures start from the bottom up, as in, you submit your last photo first, and your first last if you want it in some sort of order (just discovered this).

Step 6. Damn, why dont they just change "Your" to "You" in the English language.

Step 4. Again with the "You" instead of "Your".
Step 3.JPG
Step 3. Accidentally spelled "Your" without an "r", so it looks like "You".

Black powder, I pressume?
Did you machine the barrel/cannon, or find/purchase the whole unit as is and modify it a bit?
This is pretty darn cool, can you describe how you came across the idea adn construction?

well my last cannon broke and i decided to make another one...and yes i molded the barrel with my dad down at his shop and we used a ban saw to cut out designs of a polish cannon on the internet. we pretty much just used a peice of oak, a big piece of brass, and some brasss screws. the wheels are machined out of the same wood as my sides pretty simple design but really really powerful.

Awesome cannon. That fact that you made all of it on your own (in your Dad's shop) makes it complete. My hat's off to ya.
