Da Vinci Catapult

A gift for him : a teenage boy, a young adult or a father. Build a working re-creation of Leonardo De Vinci's 15th century catapult (using a spring like energy stored in bent wood to give power to the swing arm). A corporate gift for the office, a birthday gift for a boy.

A male will have endless fun building the catapult. Once it is completed, the catapult makes an impressive feature and actually works. The device is adjustable and includes principles of stored energy, ratchets and physics.

The catapult takes about 1 hour to build & is made of natural, untreated wood from sustainable forests. All pieces are pre-cut and ready to go. Parts are pegged for extra strength.

Assembled size: W 160mm; L 450mm; H: 420mm.

Ages 12 years and over.
