The 4th of July has come and gone this year and I wanted to post this little project beforehand but I forgot. Damn too many beers on the fourth! I made this rocket launcher to save my fingers and hands from errant explosions of which we had three, good for me eh? I would be typing today with maybe two fingers instead of my usual 6 :-) It’s made from scrap OSB board and a small piece of conduit for the launch tube. It worked great and didn’t even catch on fire, quite a bonus I must say. I can send plans or you can probably figure it out for yourself, it’s pretty simple. Thanks for peeking at my wood.

When celebrating and firing off the rockets, wet the wood before using to prevent any stray sparks from doing any damage. Great idea!
