Default Shop pictures.

Here are a couple of pictures of my shop, and a couple of projects I'm working on. The candy or M&M dispensers pattern is from Cherry Tree. It's a 3 Tube pattern, I made these from that plan and just shortened the length of them, Taking one or two tubes out. They are pine finished with a spray on Min Wax gloss poly finish.

Like most of us looks like you accomplish a lot in a small space! I like the candy dispensers! That rifle at the back door should keep the candy thieves at bay..LOL.

Ron, can you provide more info on the candy dispensers? I am interested in how the candy is metered and have not heard of "Cherry Tree" before.

Vikingcraftsman has the link on his post.They have plans for the tree tube dispensers, I just shortened the length, eliminating one tube and the other two tubes. These are not quite finished, there is a slide that is just under 2" wide and 8" long that goes in the space under the tubes. It has a 1" hole drilled to accept the candy. the slide pulls forward and the candy drops out. The tubing, I get from U.S. Plastics It is 2" OD and 1- 3/4" ID it is cut 6" long. I cut it on the Band saw, slow speed. These are fun to make but a lot of work. I made 19 of them, production style. these are only some of them. I finish them with a spray on poly from MinWax. I found out it's best to spray all the pieces before assembly. They are all screwed together and screw holes plugged. Sorry the metal tube above the door is not a gun they are extension tubes for my Shopsmith. The only gun you see by the door is a bb gun. Left over from when the kid were younger. Gives a pretty good sting though. Being that I sell these I use Select grade pine and have around $15.00 in matieral in the three tube Disp. I am making one in Oak for my wife's cousin, she wants 3 of them for Christmas presents. She is getting the oak one for her Bar in the Basement.I'm going to the store were I have these tonight and will take some pics of the finished ones I have there. I'll try to post them late tonight. If I remember correctly Cherry Tree Toys has several different candy dispenser plans in their catalog. The shop is not finished, but usable. I am learning where I need to put shelves, cabinets, etc. etc. and how all is going to fit and work for me. Including permanent wiring and air lines and such. Have to go for now, Thanks for the compliments, I'l be on later tonight.

Hey, Ron. Nice shop and neat projects. I notice you have a MKV 520. Do you post on the Shopsmith forums?
