Here is a link to a video explaining how to make such a vending machine, one simple enough to keep at your desk, which can be fashioned out of wood (of have a wooden exterior built to protect it better from theft). Other youtube channels have their own machines, but I haven't found one that states the dimensions needed. Though it's essentially based on the size of your coin/product that will be vended: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVTmXC_UrX0
I also would like to build a vending machine. I take a 12 pack of cokes to work and everyone "borrows" one and promises to replace it but never does. I like these guys so I'm not really mad but I'd like something that would at least allow me to break even. I'd love a design that would be made mostly of wood and would allow someone to insert a quarter and get a can of coke in return. Doesn't need refrigeration or anything, just something simple that will be as much a conversation piece as anything. Doesn't need to be vandal proof or check for fake coins. But I do want the coin box to be secured.
