Viking Catapult




Have you ever wanted to lay siege to a midieval castle? Your neighbors desk at school? Or the office next to you at work? Well now you can with the Viking catapult!

WARNING! I am no responsible for injuries do not shoot at the eyes. Use common sense people!

Step 1: Gather Materials


- bamboo stick/things (5)

- pencils(2)

- cap from a 2 liter

- rubber bands (3)

- hot glue gun

- pliers or really strong hand

Step 2: Main Triangle Frame

Take 3 bamboo sticks and hot glue them together in a triangle. Make sure at the corners theirs a little notch ( will explain in the next step ) see pic.

Step 3: The Base

Get 2 more bamboo sticks and glue 1 to each side where you want the bottom to be in a triangle shape. Make sure the base sticks are in between the notch. See pic.

Step 4: Support Sticks

Now to your 2 pencils and pull the metal and eraser end off. Now this next part is kinda hard to explain so I'll let the picture speak for itself.

Step 5: Launcher Thingy

Get your bottle cap and hot glue 3 rubber bands to it take 2 of them after there on and glue them to the pencil tops and put the eraser thing back on. Then take the last rubberband and tie it to the bottem bamboo stick and put some glue on it.

Step 6: Your Done!

Congrats! You've made your very own Viking catapult. Thx for reading and enjoy!
