This feeder is made from cedar lap siding and treated lumber left over from buillding my home. The dog gone raccoons have really taken a liking to it and they are nearly impossible to keep out of it at night. The base is made from 4” x 4”’s. It is very heavy so the base expands over 4 feet and sometimes I’m not sure that is enough.

That looks great. If I try to put one up, though, the squirrels and rats will have a field day.

I like this a lot! As far as raccoons go, if you have a fenced back yard I used to let my dogs out as soon as I knew they were out there, a few times of this and they never returned!

Nice job Teri. Have you thought of hanging it and a bit further from the railing?
