Biggest ever matchstick gun. In my first video I made an ordinary matchstick gun out of clothes peg. This one is 10 times bigger. :)

Step 1: DISASSEMBLE CLOTHES PEG

Disassemble clothes pegs in two by pulling two halves apart. you'll end up with 3 parts two wooden halves and spring.

Step 2: CARVE OUT MECHANISM

Draw with a marker onto one half as shown. onto another one make place to hook spring. Cut off two ends so match sits in there freely.

Step 3: ASSEMBLE AND SHOOT.

Put two halves together and secure them with cable ties. And attach spring as shown. then push matchstick into a barrel till spring clicks in place. Then pull string and shoot. :)

    Thanks for this posting as I've thought many times of the clothes-pin guns I made as a kid but couldn't recall just how. But you might want to edit as CANNON is a gun whereas CANON is a rule ;)

    Nice and simple, not to mention Awesome!

    Have to say though I was disappointed you didn't add a striker to the end of it so it shot Flaming Matches :D

    Anlongside a "Don't do this at home" message ofcourse :)
