I build a lot of birdhouses but never anything for squirrels until now :-)
This squirrel feeder is 26” wide x 19” deep, 20” high and made from white cedar . I will also be making a pile of these in the next few months .

If you need some squirrels you can have the ones that raid my bird feeders ,you will go broke feeding them.
Very nice job on the feeder.

Man that is really a nice feeder,the roof really makes it stand out I build a lot of bird feeders and have a big problem with the squirrels eating up my bird houses.I can not imagine putting the time into your extreme birdhouses and see something chewing on it.I really get mad when they chew on mine and they are nothing compared to yours.

Thanks guys !
I have had a few squirrels in the past start chewing on the windows of the birdhouses but it was easy to replace them in a matter of a few minutes .
I am hoping this feeder will keep them busy:-)

Looks good John. The squirrels ought to like that. Is that jar big enough for a squirrel to crawl into? That would drive the hawks crazy.
