Personal Trebuchet

I designed this dually as one of my tutorials on (my very first web site!) and for my World Civilizations I final project. I began by attempting to make it in Photoshop but soon realized that I would have much better luck (and increased adaptability) if I did it in 3D. So, I guess this is just to show off that I know how to model simple things in 3D. I did this in SketchUp. I am currently learning 3DS Max 9.

If you'd actually like to make this trebuchet, I have the full tutorial online at
