Now the slide that will dispense the candy. 8” X 2” X a little less than 3/4” thick to allow it to slide freely. A 7/8 diameter hole with a 45 degree bevel. A 1/2” round bit on the end to pull the slide out and a 1/4” hole for the stop in the top and bottom to keep the slide from going in too far and one to keep it from coming outE3DA8D38-6DA5-4705-8FF0-E5427E782C47.jpeg.b54e714ea657518cd04ee7c4c5831898.jpegBB3D59AA-BD68-4205-97AC-90662782578D.jpeg.f4816bbf1a616b36829d7f7bb54257f8.jpeg37EB1F07-3EF1-4C29-A714-1C27925C4A0D.jpeg.97199524eff2bf382578dc8e62e751ca.jpeg4D07880F-E0DE-45EB-84A3-C0F05C29231D.jpeg.1f1dac8d85e4c876e68ec3746707e7b2.jpeg

My grandkids love the one that Dave gave to my wife.  Actually I use it more than I should, too.

Why not use the metal ring from a canning Jar? Interesting project.

BTW, all M&Ms are made here in Cleveland, Tennessee!

That’s exactly what I do, final pictures tomorrow

Your closer than I thought. I'm just up highway 31 and a mountain away. Near McMinnville, Tn

Me too Ronn but sure beats having the family sized bag next to you on the couch.

Are you referring to all that exercise that you get walking from the couch to the dispenser and back again.?

Forgot to add I put a relief cut with a 1/2” bit 1 1/2” deep to allow the slide to come out of the dispenser more, 1/4” dowel inserted on the bottom of the slide keeps it from coming outD7BCB1EA-D9AE-4F1E-BDA5-BC5B6D976F6F.jpeg.91d5bb326aba2e4434ced8d04214037c.jpegC4B7918F-E6AF-4CC7-9170-7A3D1DAE907D.jpeg.93c334bc2bb3f3cc16511596733de1b6.jpegA71D6F26-D77D-4A67-BCE8-A865749D2462.jpeg.c4476d017bf6c63f8bdb7ba7309a748f.jpeg

Thanks Paul, more of a how-to instead of a journal but I had a request from a couple good friends on here to show how I build them and if it saves some scraps from the burn pile and somebody is looking for a quick and easy gift I’ll be happy

Thanks. Got tons of wood. Met a lady who turned decorative rings or covers for jars. She used E6000 adhesive which seems to be a silicone.

I usually just use clear silicone, but when I run out of the supply I’ve got I’m thinking of switching to Lexel on the recommendation of @wdwerker and others, clearer, stronger and of course more expensive :(

I wondered about the silicone as an adhesive. Over time, that stuff seems to break up in the applications I've seen it used in at work. That may be an environmental thing, though. Steel making tends to break up just about everything....
