  • Skittles Dispenser - Version 2

    Here is a slightly modified gumball dispenser from Steve Good's Pattern. I have added a tray. The wood is a new plywood my local Lowes started carrying. It was finished with Tung Oil.

      The tray is a good idea. The wood is really intriguing and gives a different personality to the design - nice job!

          The tray is a much needed addition.........sweeeeet stuff DW. That looks like BB ply, is it?
          I'll have to check out my local Lowe's if it is, I have to go to Rockler's for BB ply now, but sure would be easier at Lowe's.

            Actually this is NOT BB. This is ply that is from a company that is making a US equivalent called Appleply. It is made here in the states and is distributed in the US and Canada. The play generally has a white maple facings both sides with 1/16 birch core layers. Here is the website for more information on the Appleply States Industries Appleply

                DW nice project! Thanx so much for the info on the new plywood...I am definetly going to check and see if our local Lowe's carries it, it has so much possibilities!!! Is it only sold as 4' x 8' sheet goods, or is it available in smaller cut sizes? What is the cost in your area? Have you tried to stain it?

                Thanx Again!

                  Kim at the Lowes near me it was cut in board sizes from 4 inches to about 10 inches and several feet in length. They also had 2' square and 2' x 4' sections. It was a little more expensive than regular maple comparable to BB prices. I was glad to see a US made BB replacement.

                    Thanx DW for the info as it will give me an idea of where to look in the store...ya know how hard it is to find help sometimes ;-). If it is close in price it is well worth buying Made in USA products...which I try as much as possible.

                    Thanx again & happy sawdust!

                      Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                      Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                      Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                      My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                      I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                      Was it a good idea.....?...

                      Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                      The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
