Trebuchet plans, etc.

Poster: rmhowe <magnusm@ncsu.edu>

For those rabid deconstructionists:

The December 1997 issue of American Woodworker (#63) 1-800-666-3111
contains an article called Trebuchet! by Russell Miners, a member of
the Grey Company, an Australian Reenactor Group very much interested
in such things ( http://www.iinet.net.au/~rmine/gctrebs.html ).
The plans look good and it is attractively finished.
This is about table sized, but the designer claims it will throw a
stone about 70 feet. Perfect for those back of the feast hall
targets (or those front of the feast hall ones). Can you say kumquat?

A bonus here is that there are also plans for a bow saw in the same
issue. Just the thing to build all that medieval furniture you've 
been meaning to build.
