Cedar, acrylic. The design did not account for the squirrels rapid increase in weight. Options could be to make the platform shorter to reduce the lever forces, or additional fasteners.

Good job. I built a squirrel feeder … ONCE! They emptied that sucker in 5 minutes! It was just too costly to keep it filled.

Good pictures…

The squirrels are fun to watch but category a feeder fast. The fun part is to feed the birds and keep the squirrels off. It is a real contest.

We hang our feeders and have a two way squirrel baffle above it and seems to work.

waterproof glue and fewer fasteners or pilot holes and don’t overtighten the fasteners.

Great looking feeder!

Now, if you’d like more of these furry little guys, you can have all the ones in my backyard!
