…It’s Things Thursday: Whoosh Boom Splat?

Few things are as satisfying as setting off your own shooter, which is why Whoosh Boom Splat, The Garage Warrior’s Guide To Building Projectile Shooters, is today’s thing. This how to guide shows you the step by step process of making:

  • The Night Lighter 36 Spud Gun
  • The Marshmallow Shooter
  • The Yagua Blowgun
  • The Jam Jar Jet
  • The Elastic Zip Cannon
  • The Mechanical Toe
  • The Vortex Launcher
  • The Clothespin Snap Shooter
  • The Architronito

In addition to the detailed diagrams and the supply lists, William Gurstelle also gives you information about what makes each machine unique along with the historical origins of each device. If you’ve got a hankering for some tinkering, then this is the book for you.

And if you’re going to make a spud gun, there’s no better place to go for information than The Spud Gun Technology Center, a literal encyclopedia of knowledge about anything and everything you’ll need to know to send a spud into space.
