Building a Miniature Trebuchet

And now for something completely different! Join me as I venture beyond the world of Thunder Mesa in this first of a series of new maker videos that exploring other genres and creative pursuits that catch my fancy. For this first project, I'm building a Medieval trebuchet! These massive 12th century siege engines were the super weapons of their day, and I had a complete blast building this one in 1/4" scale. Watch over my shoulder as I hit the workbench and describe the build step-by-step from start to finish.

Thanks for tuning in, amigos!
