Yup! Yet another m&m dispenser! Getting ready for Christmas early this year. If I need to gift someone unexpectedly I’ll be ready. I Just hope they will like candy!
PS. Don, I bet you had no idea how big that can of worms was!

These will make awesome gifts Tony. I applaud you for getting a jump on Christmas, I’m afraid I am already too late in getting started.

Looking good Tony, it looks like you’ve got 1 plain and 1 peanut.

I love it tony, each one seems to get another addition and looks really unique. I finished the double (still need to post it) and already got 3 more requests. Something about these brings out the youth in us all!

I am really glad to see just how big this can of worms will get Tony It is nice to see so many getting pleasure from something that I had laying around on a shelf for years. I have given out over 15 sets of plans so far, and I thank you for doing the same. It sure is nice to see some of the guy’s and yourself deviating away from the originals. I think that M@M’s should pay me a little royalty as their sales has to have gone up in the last few weeks. He! He! Hoping to see some of you other Lj’s hand at this.

I haven’t even thought of what I want for Christmas, let alone what to get for others. lol. These are looking great but I can’t make up my mind between the natural or the painted. Big plus for plain and peanut.
Now I have to figure out what I’m waiting for, probably Christmas.

Wow. I haven’t even started mine from the plans you sent me and you have knocked out two more beauty’s. With an upgrade! I have been volentold that a local school needs gifts for the teachers and have this in mind. Once again, great job and thanks for your generosity!

Thank you everyone! I’ve got a few more to post later. I just hope people are not sick of seeing these.

I’m way ahead of schedule this year. Now I need to find a new project for next year.

Knowing you… the one you make will look like a vintage truck or car!

I had to see if the peanut ones would work without changing the slider hole and it work really well. My 45 degree angle hole that is.

I’m still waiting for you to post your dispenser! I know it’s going to look good after seeing your blog.

Look what you started! Now you want royalties!!!! I’ll put in a good word to the m&m CEO for you!

Just make one of each. They will all look good! I’m having a hard time staying away from the one with the candy in them. Especially the ones with the nuts!

Oh Yes! this would make a nice teachers gift for sure. And your very welcome!

I’‘m grateful to have gotten the plans from Don, (Rockbuster). He got me started on these just as I was looking for something to make for Christmas this year.

I’ve seen your work and your work is nothing short of amazing. These dispensers would be a cake walk for you!

Tony, do MMs grow on trees where you live? I’m guessing that after the last pair you posted, you read in one of the comments, (I remember it) someone saying they should be Plain/Peanut, and went directly to work on this set.

Great job Tony, I told Rockbuster that he needed a production plant for all of his orders, and it looks like you are in the same boat.
Glad to see the deviations also.
Thanks for sharing these.


PS. I haven’t seen many Round or Oval specimens yet.!!!!!!!!!
