These plans are to build the Trebuchet as depicted in the Fisher’s Shop video on YouTube. This little siege engine can chuck a tennis ball well over 20yards! And as you saw in the video, a couple of them can make for a super fun yard game. There's something very enjoyable about building a contraption that comes to life and does something. So whether you plan on flinging tennis balls at targets, or using it for physics experiments, this Trebuchet is a blast to make. The plans include all the templates you'll need for the project so there's virtually no measuring needed. So if you're a beginner that's looking for a good starter project or an expert that just wants to build a piece of medieval weaponry, then this one is for you!
