Siôn Silyn Robert's Cannon

Here's an e-mail I received from Siôn on Dec 21, 2011:


Hi Allen,
I think that I can only claim ‘inspired by’ for this and I confess that it is not very well made. I do not have much/any spare time. As you can see the bore size is relatively small so that it will be a bit safer if it is ever fired. The first cannon that I made many years ago was about half the size of this and has been fired a number of times. Even at that size it is potentially dangerous device, so this one needs to be treated with respect. The carriage is walnut and the wheels are plum wood from our garden, for sentimental reasons.
I will try to find time to make a better one.
All the best and have a relaxing holiday,


Thanks Siôn - looks OK to me!
