Cannon and cannon balls

Post by jarm2 »

This is my attempt at the cannon that was shown in an earlier post. I added the rammer and a stack of cannon balls. The cannon was cut from fir dimension lumber and the balls from 1-1/2" thick lumber. I cut each layer using two sided methods and then glued the layers together. Painted with oil based exterior paint. Trunnion hold downs are made from paperstone for strength.

Reminds me of the cannons at Trophy Point at West Point. Very cool.

The files were from a previous post on this forum. I appreciate the person who contributed them. It makes a nice addition to our front lawn.

I LIKE it. I thought of the Cannon Balls and rammer after I made the cannon. I'll have to give it go. NICE work!!! REALLY NICE.
