I have a friend who likes to feed the squirrels at his house. He needs some new feeders. So now when ever I get the right scraps he gets a feeder “on the cheap”. Three pocket hole screws to hold it together, one screw up from the bottom to screw the cob of corn on and two through the back to hold it to the tree or post. Took a whole 5 minutes to make including digging out the scraps and cleaning up. This one happens to be poplar. The squirrels and my friend are quite happy now.

Great work – it does exactly what it is designed to do. Perfect!

If you are feeling more adventurous, take a look at the contraption I built for my neighbor…....

You can give those tree-rats a real workout! ;-)

Keep up the good work!

Now that’s cool. I’ll have to start saving scraps to build one. He’ll love that.

My mother in law lives in a senior community & they love to feed the squirrels.
I’m going to make a bunch of these and attach them to the trees of whoever would like one.
Lots of potentially appreciative expert cookie bakers around there.
Not that would have anything to do with it…..LOL
Thanks Steve!
