My sister has been known to sign greeting cards with her signature and cartoon character that she created. As a gift to her, I turned her character into a candy dispenser. It is made of 1/4” plywood, poplar, acrylic plastic sheet and tubing. It was painted with water-based acrylic paints. The mouth turns to dispense the candy into a little chute below. Turned out to be an interesting and challenging project to design and build.

That is clever, she will treasure it.

This is a very creative project and I’m sure that your sister was very excited about your fabrication of her cartoon character using wood. Nice work.
