When I was at the Woodcrafters store the other day I saw this little box. I took a few pictures of it and made this one today.

I’ll send it up north to our grandkids. I didn’t take an measurement of the one in the store. I made my box this size 6.5” H x 4” W x 1.5 D It works!
You can find it on this web site.

Very cool.
Also makes me hungry.
I would probably add some gears, so the kids get their exercise before getting their candy ;-)

I like it! I might just have to make one!

I just bought that kit for a Christmas present for my daughter. I am looking forward to her working with me in the shop to build it. Yours looks great, I am sure the grandkids will love it.
