Jenga Pistol

I've just made a few of these Jenga Pistols as Christmas presents for friends, and then my girlfriend put a video on Twitter and people seemed to like it.  It's powered by elastic bands and works with standard-sized Jenga (the giant version might be a bit of a stretch - though making a pistol for that would be fun too)

I've handmade these from oak in my workshop. In fact, even most of the tools used to make these I've made myself.
