Another Christmas Gift Finished!

Not as nice as the Mahogany one I posted a few weeks ago but not too bad considering I used some soft white pine from the local Home Depot.

Box-Joint construction, Stained with Minwax English Chestnut #233, sanding sealer and a lacquer finish.

I have plans for an Octagon single jar dispenser that I got from Rockbuster if anyone wants a copy just send me your email address in a Private Message.

Thanks for looking in on my project!

Please say a prayer for Don (Rockbuster) He is now in Hospise care.

Prayer has been sent for Don (Rockbuster)...

COOL projects…

I must try this… Looks so cool!

I imagine that those rubber bands are easily replaced when they rot out?

Thank you very much!

I have one of these from my childhood and still love them to this day. Nice double model you got there.

Joe, it’s easy to change rubber band’s. The jar covers are held on by two screws on each one and under the coves are two more screws that hold the top on. So unscrewing 8 little wood screws will allow you to change out the rubber bands if needed.
Oh.. Joe I found your Happy Thanksgiving email in my “junk spam” folder. Happy belated Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Thanks for the nice comment’s
Joe, Jim , Rich and Scott…

Tony. Tony. Tony. All of your Candy Machines seem to have the same name. “Another.” This is a wonderful piece, and I want the plans. Look for a PM. That is, the plans Don sent you. And, yours for this one, too, if you like. And, oh, the little bungie-like things that hold pony tails together will last longer than a rubber band. They don’t dry out and crack, and they lasat a coule months before they get loose.

It’s hard to tell that is only pine. That English chestnut gives it a lot of justice. I swear you have a candy store down there. Nice work Tony. I made 3 and have one left to go for some family presents. I may try the stained pine.
