Default Skittles Tower - Proof of Concept

This is an adaptation of Steve Goods Gum Ball dispenser and a jelly bean dispenser I recently saw on the boards. The skittles drop from the wheel hole and hit 3 sloped ramps to end up in the pull out tray. It will dispense Skittles, M&M's ( all makes ) Reeses Pieces, 1/2 gumballs and small shelled nuts.

The dispenser has been cut from pine and poplar. It is 18 inches tall and 7 inches at the base plate. It was finished with tung oil only. This is the proof of concept build. I wanted to see if it would work out.

DW, your "proof of concept" work is better than a lot of our final revisions!
