This is my entry for the Halloween 2011 challenge. The wood is scrap cherry. I’m using one of my daughters as a Guinea pig. Wish me luck. Hope I’m not too late.

You’re probably a bit late given the judging criteria, but in my books you are the clear winner. What a fabulous device! You’ll see real fear on the little ones faces as they calculate their need for candy against the loss of a few fingers. Let us know how it went.

In my book you are also the winner that’s the coolest candy dish I have ever seen!My daugther Mathilde is here and agree that it’s way to cool.And your daughter is just wonderful there, got to love that smile.I think I will make one of these one day, I would love to see the reaction of kids coming here for a candy when they have to choose.Best thoughts,Mads

I like it. That is one cool Halloween candy dispenser.
Even though I shouldn’t and this is only in jest, not a poke at anyone, but…..........................If that thing had SawStop technology that wouldn’t have happened!

I gotta give you a hand on this one, great idea. I bet it cost an arm and a leg though. Some people will give life and limb for the sweets.

My mom slapped my hand when she caught me in the cookie jar – but cutting your daughters hand off, takes disipline to a new level! LOL.
