How To: make a trebuchet

make a trebuchet

A what?

The last time any man, woman, or child needed to make one of these siege machines was in 16th century Europe when gunpowder became the rage...

...which is what makes this 21st century video so darn likeable. What an inspired idea for a weekend project! Physics, DIY, anachronism, and ingenuity...all wrapped into one neat video tutorial.

At WonderHowTo, we are major fans of Bre and his extended mafia (Mark F, BoingBoing, etc). We admire the fine and underappreciated art of wasting time - constructively.

Enjoy.
