Did you know?

Three years ago, I deconstructed a hedge in my back yard.  There were so many long, straight poles that I dried them and then used them to create a trebuchet.  I challenged myself to do it by feel without any plan.

The change I would make?  Move the axle farther from the weight end.  Or hang the weight on a long cord.

This has nothing to do with the contest this year, but it IS a deconstruction so I thought you’d like to see it
