Laura and I made these last year and they were a hit at our show. I think out of eight we have two left. Think I’ll make a few more this year since when we made these it was the end of the season. We showed gun in them but they worked better with peanuts and M&Ms.

Is that a lock on the side of it? How did you attach the jar to the piece? Looks great!

To answer mporter question yes there is a lock on the side of the machine and the lid is glued to the inside of the wood the jar still screws on.
