Sorry for the second post, but Jerry Howell did a plan set for a 1779 Naval 24 pounder. Usual superb quality, with helpful build information as well as the drawings. Sadly Jerry is no longer around, but his family keeps his plan sets available.

I still miss seeing Jerry and Bob Shores at Cabin Fever!

Made to Jerry Howell's plans.

Here is a 24 Pound Cannon I built 30 years ago.
The plans came in a school (right) machine shop drawings book ( 1940's )
Added a few details like the water pail,charging cup, swab and stuff. The second picture is wrong as the pail was not for cannon balls, but they rolled off the mantel so it became a temporary repository
This is a Fortress Cannon , as it has clad wheels , versus a Ships Cannon which has wooden wheels
