One of four books in our Tabletop Battles series. In Small Launchers, the mini-constructions are designed to fling small objects (safely) across the room, either by blowing or firing. The projects, all made with everyday objects, include a simple blowpipe and rubber band launcher, and a crossbow and laminated bow, and are based on historic hand-held weapons.
