Arm Cannon in Action by JohnsonArms Arm Cannon in Action by JohnsonArms
Here's my first attempt at using leather on a weapon prop. It started it's life as a nerf spiderman dart shooter. I really enjoyed the leatherworking process and hopefully future work will look more complex and refined. Let me know what you think!

Unfortunately this one got damaged while I was drilling holes so it no long fires the nerf darts. It still makes a really cool piece for your steampunk outfit...if you have the same arm size as I do, hehe. I will post another photo of the assembly laid out so you can see the button snaps that hold everything in place :)

I know its a dumb question but would'nt the exhaust gasses from such gun burn your fingers to crisp if it were a real gun?

It would, certainly, but most fanciful things wouldn't stand up to much scrutiny. If you look very far into how they would really function, you'll lose the magic of it, I think :)

Indeed, but somehow this was bit too much. On other side if it were a pressured iar launcher or a dart gun it would work nicely. ;)

Aww yeah, thanks Marc! Now that I have the bug (and a hundred bucks sunk into the tools...hehe) I promise to have more rawhide added to the lineup :)

That looks really cool. The bit of grease (paint?) on your fingers really adds to the steampunk feel. I'll have to remember to grubby up my hands if I ever do steampunk.

Haha, that's the real deal! After I took the photos, I realized they looked appropriate (saved me time in photoshop, hehe)

Is there a way to get plans on how to build one of these? I would love to fire tootsie rolls at children as they pass by.
