I built the Pooping Moose/Reindeer based upon a couple of earlier posts. I made some modifications to some earlier plans. I added a spring instead of the rubber band and it works very well and easy to install. I also changed the way the legs are on to provide a wider base and sturdier. The one in the picture is made of poplar and finished with shellac.
I cut the project using a scroll saw and sanded with a oscillating spindle sander and mop sander. I expected the project to be fairly simple but was more involved that I expected. The placement of the parts needs to be pretty careful to get it to work correctly. This was my trial one and have two more that I am making from Red Oak as presents. I also found that M&Ms sometimes do not roll easily inside and can jam and ended up using either Jelly Belly Jelly Beans or Skittles.
