Sometimes you just feel the need to make something just because you want to. And that’s OK.

There used to be a lady at work who would keep the office stocked up on candy. Kelly the Candy Lady, I would call her.

I even made up a candy sign to keep at her desk. I then thought it would be neat to make some sort of candy dish to replace the random bowls/containers and an image of an old-fashioned candy cart came to mind.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t much long after that Kelly the Candy Lady left for a job located closer to her home. So the candy cart remained an idea in the back of my brain.

But it didn’t stay there. What I had in mind was too fun to not make! So little by little, as time allowed between other projects, I started the cart! And what was really unique (for me) was that I just made it up as I went along. None of my normal 3D Cad drawings and measurements. Just a tape measure and mostly scrap wood.

It now sits proudly in the office, keeping everyone in a sugar-induced coma.

This is so cool! I like the story and the build. I would love to give this a try sometimes as my wife sells home made goodies at a local farmers market. Seems the dimensions are 5 mason jars by three mason jars LOL. Thanks for posting this. Excellent job!
