Want to fling some small objects around the office? This perfectly tuned miniature trebuchet from the Maker Shed is a beautiful addition to any desktop, and it really works! It takes up only 4″x9″ of desktop space and stands just 14″ tall. Included in the kit are four wooden projectiles, all the necessary components for the sling, trigger, and counterweight bucket, as well as all the parts for the kit.

The only things you’ll need to supply are 88 pennies for counterweight and a few simple tools: scissors, a ruler, a utility knife, wood glue and a few rubber bands to hold the pieces together while the glue dries.
