After Tony (Woodshaver) sent me a set of plans it was a matter of time before I got to it. I couldn’t decide what lumber to use or if I wanted to paint it. Suddenly, right in front of me was a piece of the flame box elder and I knew then the choice was done.
I saw the one that BobWemm turned on the lathe so I wanted to do a turned version also. A few things I had to figure differently since the lathe version changed a few of the dimensions but it gives plenty of help in the long run.
I didn’t have another piece dry enough for the chute or the puller so I improvised with some maple and padauk and pine. I also went with the rubber band retractable puller just because it is a cool idea. Thanks Tony.
This is for my daughter-in law who loves her gourmet jelly beans. So when I saw all those m&m dispensers I knew I had to make a jelly bean one for her.
Gave it to her earlier today and she loved it.
Thanks for Rockbuster for opening up a can of worms.
Thanks for looking.
