Very nice!<br><br>I'd love to see more details, though - dimensions, how you made the joints etc - and a scene of you loosing the trebuchet in daylight.
thank you very much we worked hard on it:) <br> <br>my english is not so good so i can't go into some good details but i'll try lol <br> <br>this trebuchet was made from 2 trees as you see in the first picture, the joint was cut out of a single big woodblock i maked an example in picture 2, the joint in picture 2 fits perfectly in the 2 supporting beams on each side. These supporting beams were cut out as well as i show u an axemple in the 3rd picture. after that we added the arm of the trebuchet to the joint. <br> <br>i hope this helped you a little bit but if you want to know more about this just say it and i'll try to help you with it greetz from the Netherlands. <br> <br>btw here is the link of a test run at day time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGH_KMhusEA
