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.

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.-don
