It was late, late at night when the Munchies stealthily attacked Toothache Hotel. All of the guests were sound asleep, not even dreaming of what horrors lay in store…....
Lounging in Suite 1 were Mr. and Mrs. M & M, a colourful couple albeit with a very shopworn alias. Nutty they were. “You just melt in my mouth” was often overheard when they murmured to one another.
Residing in Suite 2 was the young, exquisite and very fashionable Ms. Dark Chocolate, and crunchy old Mr. Espresso Bean III. Lest you demur at the impropriety, they were cosseting, consenting adults (but only grudgingly consented to by my daughter as she hates coffee).
Finally in Suite 3 we have the Smarties family, fresh from what was described by one of the kids as being “A really dark, crinkly bag of a place, an epic fail for anybody’s digs!.”.

So help me out, I’m confused, what is the moral here??
This is not an original design but a compendium of web images and LJ projects. You can easily find many great candy machines posted by Lumberjocks.
I made two of these, this one and one that was donated to a silent auction fundraiser for Hincks Dellcrest, a children s mental health service. It was bid up to $400 by several crazy adults so I was quite amazed at their mental health but really pleased for the agency.
To build it I used a bunch of different woods, all of the usual dramatic suspects – because if candy isn’t flash then what is?
Doweled and grooved construction, Plexiglas and leather.
Plus a shellac finish!, which is, quite interestingly, what hard shell candy is often coated with.
7” x 4 3/4” x 15”
About 14 hrs (2)
Build on LJ’s.
