This is a gum ball machine for granddaughter #3 to unload her “yard” of gumballs that she got for Christmas. We downloaded the plans shown here and then modified them – combining parts to have fewer pieces to make. Plus the plans are for small gum balls and hers are 1” diameter. A mason jar worked out just great for the clear container on top.
