Squirrel Spinner

When the squirrel tries to get to the piece of corn the whole arm will spin around because he weighs it down. This will “spin” the little guy right off the arm. Sometimes they fly, sometimes they just fall. They’ve successfully snagged one ear already and we’re waiting to see on the other. My father in law found these for sale online and thought it would be cool to make one so he set me to work. It’s all cedar construction glued and screwed together. The arm sticking out is a cedar 4×4 and the the rest is one 1×6x8’ from the depot that I cut in half and glued face to face then cut the back plate and spinner to shape.

Neat idea, so could we get a video of it in action?

What a hoot. Almost makes me wish I had squirrels. Almost.

-- That was not wormy wood when I started working on it.

Watching my squirrels on one of those could almost repay me for all of the bird food they have stolen! Robert

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Be careful. PETA will be knocking on your door soon for making the squirrels dizzy. ;) Neat idea!

This is for entertainment, right?

Much better than watching birds at a feeder, that’s for sure.

Now that you’ve got ‘em all riled up… try squirrel fishing. Tie a peanut on a fly rod. The goal is to cast the peanut close enough that the squirrel grabs it and holds on for dear life. See if you can land him!
