Who doesn’t love a good trebuchet? This comprehensive Trebuchet Kit (available in the Maker Shed) is 100% hand made in Michigan by people who spend their free time launching pumpkins. Once the precision cut pieces are glued together, you’ll have a trebuchet that stands 19″ tall and launches objects up to 30 feet. Everything you need to build the kit is included, right down to the glue and ammunition. No special tools are needed for assembly although a set of clamps will make it much easier. Just add your own counterweight (loose change works well) and you’ll be laying siege before you know it!

Perfect for groups, schools, and anyone who likes launching objects. (Sorry about the blurry video, we’ll make a better one soon.)
