My plan was to glue the lid in, but currently it such I tight fit that it is holding without glue. At first I thought it was just too small and the lid wouldn’t fit, but I was able to tap it in.
I love this, it’s so cute! My kids would love this.
Very nice, indeed. Thanks for sharing.
Any pix of the innards? I bet they were fun to design!
This is super cool
This is so cute! I love it!
You can get a better idea of the innards from the original, over here:
There are a few pics of the insides.
And this includes a model of the internal gear mechanism:
Very nice. Thanks!
Delightful!!! I love it!
Clever use of upside down jar. Very cool.
I cannot take credit. It was a suggestion by @ellencadwell !
This very cool project just keeps getting better and better!
I am attempting to make one of these out of medium clear acrylic. It is thinner than the medium plywood or draftboard, so it is requiring glue.
Once it is dry and working, I will post more pictures.
I tried it with smaller candies (Skittles) and it works, just not as well I would like.
The acrylic version was a pain to assemble, but the mechanism is so smooth in acrylic. I might try a combination version with acrylic on the inside and plywood for the encasement.
This is so clever! I like both the wood version and the acrylic version. Using the mason jars was great as they are so readily available. I hope it makes it to the catalog - I will be looking for it! Thank you for sharing your pictures.
I just submitted it. Had a few revisions to it. I wanted to make sure it was just right.
The instructions took a while and had several revisions also. Hopefully it will be available in the coming weeks.
What a conversation piece to just see the gum balls come down inside! Love it!
I am so glad that you did - thanks for letting me know! I will be watching for it!
