Laser-Cut Gumball Machine

I wanted to make something I've not seen before: a laser-cut gumball machine.

So here is what I came up with:

You turn the big gear and gumballs pop out of the bottom.  

The bottom is MDF that I treated with beeswax to make it food-safe.   The top is acrylic.   My wife suggested I make the next one completely in acrylic so you can see the mechanism as it works.

I took some videos of the design process, and I'll post them once I've had time to edit them together into one big video.
