I make these machines for gifts and sell them now and then. Nice Winter project up here in Minnesota. Lots of little work but every Grandma or Grandpa should have one available. Photo 1: Oak with Tung Oil finish. 2:Leopard wood 3: Cherry 4: Oak 1/4 Sawn 5: Cherrry, Maple, and Oak. I am learning more and more about jigs, patterns and the difference between a project and production. I like projects!

Nice looking project. Do you sell them full or empty.

Every time I see a candy machine I think about making one. But I can never figure out how to keep the candy in them. Maybe I need to figure out how to put a lock on one. Anyway, this one looks great.
