One of my favorite vices.
My wife makes me keep it in the cabinet until used.
Growing up out family "tradition" was popcorn and milkshakes on Sunday night. It was a popper where you had to stir it to keep the kernels from sticking to the bottom of the popper.
Yes Jason, after I applied wood conditioner, I then painted the popcorn design on the Popcorn Dispenser. I used paint-brush and paint from a local craft store. To help apply the paint I cut out a template from paper. Never use paper for a template. Then I applied three coats of Polyurethane. Thank you for showing interest and asking the question.
I remember my early childhood when we got out a big ol' pot. Lather the bottom of the pot with oil then throw in the kernels of popcorn. Then put the stove on medium or high, can't remember which. Then shake the pot like crazy, like your life depended on it, when the kernels began to pop. Next, emty the pot into a container and after that put a lot of butter in the pot, which would still be hot from making the popcorn. Watch the butter melt and then slather it all over the popcorn. The good ol' days!
