Building a black powder cannon from 50 feet of paper (VIDEO)

YouTube science channel NightHawkInLight decided to craft a .75 caliber-ish black powder cannon from a roll of paper, some epoxy, random lumber and some casters.

For a total investment of less than a cheap lunch, he comes up with an interesting but ultimately disposable design capable of hurling a ball bearing.

However, the cannon sled is reusable which means as long as you have a few rolls of craft paper and keep with a small enough charge, you could be in business.

Of course, don’t try this at home, etc.
