Terry Jantzi says: “I built a homemade machine that works spectacularly. Made out of surplus steel bowls, a hanging plant basket and a propane torch, I produce all kinds of flavored cotton candy for family and friends.”

I like the way his video progressives from a working prototype to a slick finished project.

    that is a perfect prototype for a Maker video. instructive and progressive and just the right amount of additional text information. this guy should be making instructional videos (as well as high temperature confections)

    What I liked best about it was the way he was able to show the complete process without a lot of voice over. Great video.

  • Manny Flores

    so does the candy come out of the top of the little bowls or out from the seam between the welds?
