This is a squirrel twirler. I made this a long time ago with my daughter when she was about 9. I enjoyed making this with her because her heart was in it. She loved to be in the shop with me doing anything, so I figured it was time to make her first “project”. Your supposed to put dry corn at the end of it were the hook is. When a squirrel sits on it to eat the corn then it spins, its fun to watch squirrels when they get on it and they wonder what is going on.

Do the tree rats fall into a pot of boiling water? If so, I’m a fan!

Looks like it spins on the bolt. Squirrel runs up, board spins down, squirrel turns around and runs up, board tilts the other way, endless hours of squirrely fun

This looks like a project in one of my lawn furniture books I purchased from Lowes. Nice job.

I’ve got a Border Collie that would sit under that tree all day waiting for that squirrel to “Fly!”

I’m not a big fan of killing anything without a valid reason…....squirrels around these parts are just food for the predators….and when the predators can get enough of them…they stay away from my chickens… I mostly leave the squirrels be….

BUT – if you put one of them twirlers up…painted it so it looked like a spinning bullseye…Now you are talking…why…it would be a great target shoot…lol…hit the spinning squirrel and win a cupie doll….it sounds like that bean bag toss that folks were making for tailgaters….you could even make a background so the twirler becomes a pointer … wheel of fortune….hit the squirrel…win the prize…..I better stop now fore the humane society or PETA comes after me…
