Trebuchet: Part 07

Here is the arm. This is the main swinging part that flings stones, horses, or bouquets. The large hole is where the main axle is going to be. There's a smaller hole near the left end where the uprights from the counterweight box will attach.

Here's a closer picture of the end pin lashed to the arm. It's not exactly round. But it's pretty close considering I sanded it down from being square. And it's smooth for a cleaner release of the sling.
