Here is a candy dispenser I made for my son as my last present to him before a year long deployment. Every night before I left we would eat a handful of skittles together. I wanted him to have a little something to remind him of his dad. Made of maple and walnut, with a spring loaded button, dispenses 5-7 skittles per push.

  • First of all thank you for your service....I would love to build one of these for my grandkids.  By chance do you have the basic measurements for this project and instructions.  I realize this is several years old and hopefully you might be able to help me.  Thank you for your time and assistance.  Please send to:  sirgrumpy1@gmail.com

    • I meant to respond to you earlier, this past month has been very hard on the family, we had two losses in the family between Nov-28th and Dec-12.  I will make the measurements and send you some pictures shortly!
