My lad is five tomorrow so I have made this to take our garden cricket to the next level. I don't think Gunn and Moore have anything to worry about but it was fun to make.
Elm stumps and Kingwood bales

Hi Rich

This is right up my street! Love them. Top job, well done. Could I ask where you got the spring base set?

Cheers

Richard

The trebuchet launcher is a great idea for the future :D
Thanks Rich, I made the base from some old table legs from work. Close up the welds don't look amazing but the are strong!!!! I have a really nice chop saw for metal and that makes life fairly easy.
