if you need step by step plans, you might want to be careful with building them

use only pipe with a pressure rating on it such as xxx-psi (x=numbers)
use only sch 40 fittings, NSF-DWV is ok for combustions, but use only NSF-PW for pneumatics
do not put a bbq ignitor directly in the launcher, use screws as electrodes
do not leave open holes in the launcher, searing hot gasses arent fun
dont use any fuel stronger than propane or MAPP gas at the absolute most
dont add pure oxygen to your cannon, it cant handle the pressure spike and WILL explode into shrapnel
do not use thin cleanout caps, genova ones are especially dangerous, you can see light through them, i would recommend charolette brand ones, as they are very thick.
feel free to ask questions, but please do some research before asking, most questions can be answered by simply looking around
