Welcome to GardenBallistics, the website devoted to home made cannons, electronics, engineering and amazing ballistic inventions!
This site comprises a collection of documented projects that I have undertaken as a set of somewhat obscure set of hobbies and interests. The various projects that I have ventured into over the years include pyrotechnics and rocketry to electronics and engineering.
I first began writing up and publishing a website to document the projects I undertook back in 2000. Some of the first projects I undertook were water bottle rockets and potato cannons which were inspired from various books for home science experiments for kids. After some of my friends became intrigued with what I was up to I thought it would be interesting and good fun to document some of my projects on my own website which I named “GardenBallistics”.
I have changed and modified the site over the years and have recently ventured into using WordPress as a CMS for the website. This has replaced the old fashioned method of manually compiling every HTML page which had become a somewhat tedious and outdated task that made it difficult to make simple global changes to the site. So hopefully, I will have given the site a more modern touch that will also encourage me to keep uploading interesting projects and posts.
I would be very pleased to hear from you regarding anything, so please get in touch via the contact page.
