Hi everyone
I would like to share with you my latest finished project of a sweet dispenser that i have made, as a Christmas present for a family member, from seeing the idea on the Pininterest website.
I have made quite a few of these now and i have a couple that im finishing off for a work colleague who is buying them from me for Christmas presents as well.
The wood is just offcuts that i picked up from a timber yard and the Glass jar is a "Ball Mason Jar" from the USA via Ebay. The final part, the handle is from my local DIY shop, a B&Q store.
I also have used dowelling rods on the handle for extra strength when pulling the handle. The second picture shows 2 previous sweet machines with sweets in them....and one of them i converted to a drawer for a young child.
Thanks for and All the best.
Dave.

These look fantastic. Such a smooth finish and those handles add just the right amount of fancy.

I saw a youtube tutorial for a lolly dispenser earlier in the year and decided to give it a go. It worked out ok despite a few construction issues along the way. I had hoped to make some for Christmas but just didn't happen. It's on my list for next year.
