Thanks for the link to the plan Bill. Going to make a couple for sure, I like your addition of the cup. Thanks for the video Ic,
I get more satisfaction from making a gumball machine than from making a piece of furniture. I guess it’s the child in me. Grandkids love them and their dentist appreciates the business too….
