My first attempt at making candy dispensers. Thanks to woodshaver for his plans and ideas from other posts on this site. I put small drawers in the back of the dispensers held in with small magnets. Grandkids seemed to like them. This is my first attempt trying to post a project so I am not sure how it will look after resizing the pictures.
Thanks for looking.

Very nice Brian, they all look great! I love your added drawers and Magnet idea. Good thinking, no broken rubber bands to deal with with magnets!

I must give Don (Rockbuster) some credit for sending me the plans. He made it available for all of us to share them.
Don (Rockbuster) if your reading this…. get well soon buddy we miss you!

Those are some great looking candy dispensers! I like the magnet idea for the drawers, but am not sure what the drawers are used for. Does the candy fall into them, and then you retrieve it from there?

By the way, I spent a good bit of time up in B.C. over the years, at the Abbotsford Air Show. Was up there in ‘86 for the Expo, and got to see probably the greatest air show in the history of humanity!

Thanks for giving credit to Rockbuster for the plans Tony, hopefully he is feeling better soon. They still have the rubber bands for the slide, The magnets just hold the drawers from falling out.

Dean the drawers are in the back side of the dispenser, there was some empty space in the bottom that was looking for a use, not sure what the drawers would be good for though. Just having fun trying something different.

Thanks for the great comments!

Thanks Brian, I should have read more carefully!
Magnets to hold the drawer from sliding out on it’s own! That’s a good idea, I really enjoyed seeing your ideas and everyone else’s for that matter. If Don is reading this I’m sure he is too!
