Customer Builds Stunning Scale Cannon

This is a half-scale 6-pounder (I built) with your wheels. I bought them around 3 years ago. They make the cannon!!! Every piece of wood on this piece is hickory. I made the trunk out of two 10 quarter by 12 rough sawn (pieces of) Hickory. The barrel came out of Arkansas, I think. It's a real crowd pleaser. I started with the barrel and then started searching for wheels. The realm of choices is endless. . . The most expensive component of this cannon are your wheels and it was money well spent.

Customer Completes Scale Cannon Using Quality Stock Cannon Wheels

Hansen Wheel & Wagon Shop customer, Dave Scott, completed the 1/2 scale cannon pictured above using our Scale Cannon Wheels and Lynch Pin Axle. Nice job, Dave!

Dave put a lot of research into making sure he had the right components to build this authentic design cannon. Dave used our 30" Scale Cannon Wheels with heavy 4-band hubs and 14 spokes–the standard for most original cannon wheels. He also chose to use our sturdy axles with lynch pin–an original aspect of axles traditionally used on Civil War Era cannons.
