Civil War Replica Cannon by Ed – Customer Project

Ed stopped by the Windsor Plywood store in Great Falls to thank the staff for sourcing the wood used in this Civil War Replica Cannon.  White Oak was used in the carriage, Hickory for the wheel spokes and Elm for the wheel hubs.  The wood was sent to an Amish community in Ohio as they built quite a few for the Union during the Civil War and still have the knowhow.  This artillery piece shoots about a mile and a half ‘very accurately’ according to Ed.
