I am starting a simple blog on how I made my candies for the box called “Eye Candy”
This will work as a blanket answer to all the questions I have recieved on this. Its pretty obvious that they are no more than glued up woods of contrasting colors, but this will give insight on how I did it.
I am working on pictures at this point and some will be posted in the next chapter, hopefully tonight. So follow along if you are interested.
Also, I want to thank everyone again for voting and getting me a third place :-)

I just entered it in FWW magazines contest ” The Most Scraptacular” and it was selected for the final voting phase which is done by the public. Below is a link if you are interested in looking at all the entries, many are from our fellow Jocks.

So put this on your Watch list,
Thanks
Andy

Hi Andy;

I just visited the link and was forced to vote for your entry!

It was a hands down, no brainer, which for me is fortunate. LOL

A box is not really what I picture when I hear eye candy, though.

Thanks Lee!
I considered “Candy Dish”, perhaps that would have been more appropriate :-)
