This trebuchet is the "bee's knees"

What we're attempting to communicate is that the Working Wood Trebuchet kit is the cat's pajamas. It's the eel's ankle and the elephant's instep rolled into one snake hip. It's the "b's and e's" (be-all and end-all) of trebuchet's. If you're not following our 1920's hipster language, perhaps we should expound in Middle English: Þæt wæs god cyning! Translation: "Buy the Working Wood Trebuchet from Vat19.com and many splendor Þæt will come your way."

Working Wood Trebuchet Kit
The Working Wood Trebuchet Kit is easy to assemble and flings objects up to 20 feet!

Perfect size for indoor sieges

The Trebuchet Kit is just the right size for indoor bedeviling. The trebuchet, compared to the Working Wood Catapult, is slightly more sophisticated and capable of flinging objects further.

Instead of relying on the tension created by a twisted rope, like a catapult, the Working Wood Trebuchet uses a counterweight system. Fill the box, or carriage, with heavy ballast such as small rocks, marbles, shame or guilt (you'd be amazed at their weight). The box rests on the short arm of a lever and is held aloft by a pin. When the pin is released, the box drops down and your ammo is flung toward your enemy's castle.

The Working Wood Trebuchet is perfect for indoor or outdoor mischievery.

Does not require a union carpenter to assemble

The Authentic Working Wood Trebuchet Kit only requires glue and scissors to put together. Although the manufacturer states that it will take 1-2 hours to build, it really only takes about 45 minutes.

We did the whole thing pretty quickly, only glancing at the instructions a few times. Hey, we were darned excited about being able to lay siege to a pillow fort! So, stop dilly-daddling and buy, buy, buy!
