I look at some of the absolutey extraordinary projects posted here and think “what could I post that is worthy of taking these outstanding craftsmans time?” Frankly, I’m comfortable with my abilities and I also know that I get better with each project. However, I suspect that many of our members are simply intimidated by the quality and complexity of many of the projects and just don’t post. That’s why I’m putting this squirrel feeder up, in hopes that you’ll be encouraged to put stuff up even though it’s no museum piece.
This particular idea came from a neighbor lady who had seen it in a magazine and asked me to make her one. It’s made from a single cedar fence plank. Since we have removed about 80’ of cedar fence I’ve got plenty of material. FYI, the longer members are 16” the roof and front are 8” and the sides are 9.5” and 8”. The hole size for the jar depends on your particular jar, as they vary.
Obviously these are a real simple build, but kind of a fun product. We have a friend that is selling them in her gift store for $30.00. It takes about an hour to make 5. The hardest part is finding 1 gal. glass jars.
