In the video, I'm crafting a Halloween sweet dispenser resembling a skull. A cutting design template provided in the strategies to cut out the skull's shape. A sheet of acrylic forms the face's transparent cover. I also make an inclined stand with a shop-made hinge.

  1. I was gifted several tools after a friends dad passed away. One tool was a small band saw like yours. For me it is perfect because I don’t use it often but it is really nice to have it when I need it. I don’t do large projects so the size isn’t really a limitation for me. Thank you for showing off the new tool.

  2. The dowel and small circle glue joint is a perfect place for a thin CA glue as it wicks in all by itself, but of course the wood glue works as well. Looks like a fun project!

  3. This reminds me so much of my childhood some 60 years ago!!! Ahh, eating candy out of the mouth of the dead. How nostalgic!

  4. Aww that’s a nice little project! That must have been fun to build! Might also work with an alien head or a creepy clown’s head!

  5. New meaning to a “sugar skull”. I really like that it can be made mostly with scraps. Thank you, Steve!

  6. Hey, Steve. This was a fun walk down memory lane for me. I made one many years ago using the original plans. I made it for my daughter’s then best friend. She took it with her when she moved to Japan. Do they have Skittles in Japan? Oh, well. I enjoyed watching you build this one. I have some great grandkids now. Maybe, I should make one for each of them. Thanks for the video.

  7. Brilliant work, Steve! Really beautiful candy machine!!! 😃
    Stay safe there with your family! 🖖😊

  8. i saw you make this in the past and i enjoyed then too I have a suggestion though if you drill another like half moon shape on the other side of that turning nob you will always fill it with more candy every time you turn it to drop out the candy

  9. Steve, thank you so much for always remembering to bring back memories from your past videos! I wish you the best of luck with your next project, I know from my heart you will bring joy to us all. Happy Halloween!!

  10. Pretty cool Steve! With Halloween around the corner I have to get my daughters back in the shop for some fun decor!

  11. The original video on this candy dispenser is one of my favorite halloween themed episode from you, I regularly watch those from time to time.

  12. This is so cool! The possibilities are endless with this design. You could do an alien or something silly with an even taller head to fit more candy/ bigger pieces. I love it. Thanks Steve!

  13. Hey Steve, don’t know if it helps but I try to keep a wire brush handy when using a hole saw. I find it helpful to clean the teeth with the brush while it’s spinning.
