Introduction: League of Our Own
Pieces to cut:
First cut 2 feet for side pillars (x2), then cut 2 feet length for stopper (x1). After that cut 1.5 feet for support beams (x2). For the 10 feet bottom base cut 3 feet for length (x2), 2 feet for width (x2).The second to last cut will be 4 feet for the arm (x1). The very last cut will be 2 feet for the PVC pipe (x1).
2 feet side pillar (x2)
2 feet length=stopper (x1)
1.5 feet for support beams (x2)
18 feet for bottom base=3 feet for length (x2)
2 feet for width (x2)
4 feet for the arm (x1)
2 feet PVC pipe (x1)
Total wood used:23 feet
Total PVC pipe: 2 feet
Step 1: Start Composing!!
Start by making the base by connecting the length blocks with the width blocks with screws.After the base is created it will be 3 x 2 feet.
Step 2: Adding Pillars
Then add the pillars on both sides of the catapult base with screws. These will be 2 feet tall each.
Step 3: Support Beams
To support those pillars we will have a support beam for each pillar that will be 1.5 feet each, and will be screwed into both the base and the main pillars.
Step 4: Stopper Being Screwed
Next the stopper is screwed into the middle of those two pillars.The stopper will be 2 feet in length.
Step 5: Adding PVC
The arm is the next item to be added.It will be 4 feet long and we will have 2 feet of PVC pipe going through a hole drilled into the very bottom of the arm that will extend from one side of the base to the other.
Step 6: PVC at the Bottom Base
The PVC pipe will be connected to the PVC connectors at the bottom of the base.
Step 7: Holes for Stoppers
The two holes will be drilled through the stopper.
Step 8: Adding Knot in the Holes
Then we will tie a knot in between those holes and attach it to the arm.
Step 9: Final Step
Our final step is drilling a hole in the bottom of the base behind the rope attached to the arm for the 10 feet of the rope to be put through.
