A gift for my wife for Valentine’s. Candy machine is approx. 10” tall. Front, back, and feathers are Padauk. Arrowhead is Walnut. Center and base are Maple. Turn the arrow and cinnamon red hots fall out of the bottom of the heart into the base. There’s a hole in back for filling covered with a padauk cover that slides over the hole, twisting on a screw. Sorry no picture of the back or internal mechanism right now.
