Miniature Hardware Store Cannon





Introduction: Miniature Hardware Store Cannon

this is a miniature cannon that took me about an hour to make. everything was bought from my local hardware store. please tell me what you think.

WARNING!: do not  over fill with gunpowder. i would only use black-powder and a small amount at that. THIS HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE A PIPE BOMB ! please stand no where near this when firing. if i were to take extra precautions i would pour molten aluminum down the barrel and drill a bore hole. have fun but not too much! 

if you want to see all the videos look up "miniature hardware store cannon" on youtube

    This is very cool! Great job!

    thank you. im sorry i kinda gave up on instructables for a while. i still plan on making full instructions but now i have to make a new one cause the old one was recycled into a steam engine.


    Stem engine well thats cool.

    Do you use fuse threw a hole in the top?

    yes. just a small hole

    what do you use for the fuse?
    please respond, its an amazing instructable (my favorite) and i want to make it!

    sorry, i just break open some fire crackers and steal the fuse out of them.

    Just recently filled the barrel with lead from all the shot out of some shotgun shells. I worked nice but i have to find a way to drill a strait bore hole.

    Where did u get the barrel?

    Its copper pipe
