Unlike the flimsy, snap together plywood trebuchet
kits, our all hardwood trebuchet kit does not require additional cutting,
trimming or shaping.
Requires only white carpenter's glue and a few
bar clamps (not included) to assemble.
Fire with an empty counterweight for indoor use, or add weight (nuts,
bolts, scrap lead, iron or steel, sand, or small rocks – not included)
for increased range.
Individually crafted from cabinet-grade red oak, the da Vinci Trebuchet
stands 14 inches tall in the cocked position, 24 inches tall in the fired
position and will hurl a projectile up to 60 feet. Includes six projectiles
and fully illustrated instructions.
