My favorite cannon as a cool cannon is not the same as the one I voted for because it was tattered wreck and truly ghetto.

In the same light I have seen some very unique trophies made with unusual materials such as engine pistons etc, but the ghetto award is in another class. Truly ghetto.

Here is some example recycled material trophies that does not have that ghetto appeal.

I was amazed. I thought mine was too good to garner votes. I entered for the fun. I never expected to win. There are too many that have much better ghetto builds.

I have a crappy video, just to verify pneumatic usage. I should hopefully have a hybrid video up during the weekend.

edit : 3 hours to upload, lol, guess You'll have to wait a little longer.

Edit edit:
Unfortunately I agree with JSR somewhat, I did put too much time in for my liking, but most of it was fighting with lack of proper tools that I am otherwise used to.

Originally I soo wanted to make this out of a log with the friggin' bark still on it, but It was not possible due to the high moisture content of the wood I had.
That was after I had the idea of making it out of a coconut and some bamboo :)

Sgort was supposed to be here to give this to you, but it seems he's busy. Therefore I'm proud to give you the one and only ghetto award. Don't keep it up! :D

Actually I'm kind of glad that I can now say "yeah, my last competition hybrid lost by one vote to a cardboard box".

I voted for you even though you were too ghetto to post the duct tape repair photos. :D Congratulations on a true Ghetto build.
