A pretty cool way to crack walnuts

Sunday 8.51pm

A weekend spent doing a "father-son activity" as my youngest would put it resulted in one of these - a trebuchet.

For a machine designed for destruction it does have an incredibly elegant action that I find quite hypnotic, and I am not the only one.

We spent the afternoon throwing walnuts across the garden.

If you fancy making one yourself, we used these plans but made it half size.
