This cannon is my take on a simple steampunk version of the traditional wheeled cannon. It uses the same principles as a traditional design, but this would use its attached air cylinder as cannon ball propellent, instead of igniting gun powder. Just pressurize the cylinder, open the butterfly valve (ON switch), and WHOOSH..well in theory ;)

Even though this is a solid sculpture that does not move or fire, I tried to make it look like it has fired something. By using a torch I was able to not only roll the tip of the cannon, but created that heat color fade on the copper barrel.

This cannon is made out of 100% Recycled/Upcycled Parts.
A majority of the parts are from salvaged mountain bikes, like the rotors for wheels, or the brake calipers as rear supports.
The rest of the parts are from tired copper plumbing, a lawn tractor, and a 50s era table-saw.

Its really a eye catching piece that you just can't help but take a closer look at. It would be a great addition to any steampunk, military, or cannon enthusiast's collection.

As is this is raw metal, so if intended for outdoor display, it will form a rust patina over time. If this look is not desired, I offer a preventive clear coating upon request, free of charge.

This cannon weighs in at 2.8lbs
6 3/4" Tall to top of sight/scope
7 3/4" Wide, axle nut to nut
13 1/4" Deep, barrel tip to edge of rear wheel
