A woman that works with my wife wanted a candy dispenser for her brother in Maine who loves M & M’s. I made it out of Sugar Maple and Black Locust. The grain in the Locust blends well with the Maple.

Thanks for the comments. It was fun making. I made it from a picture the woman gave me.

That looks really cool but I’m not smart enough to figure out how it works. Does it dispense them one at a time or is that a drawer that slides out filled with M&Ms?

gfadvm; the slide will fit about 10 M & M’s. The hole diamater in the slide is 1-1/4 diameter. You can make it whatever you want. I tapered the top from 2-1/2 to 1-1/4. Hope this is helpful.

Thanks Don, I understand now. I’m sometimes just a bit slow! (I think my harddrive is full!)
