Squirrel feeder made with a old coffee jar, hard to find a glass one any more. The strips of wood are 3/4×1 and just a 3/4 dado to make the pieces fit together than round the outside edges. The roof is just strips with the edge rounded over and then glued together Starting a big bird house using the same method, trying to make it look like a log house I seen.

Good project for the kids after you cut everything out for them

That is awesome! How did you round the edges? I want to do a picture frame in the same style.

Why – keeps the squirrels out of the bird feeders LOL – good entertainment watching them
John – never seen your squirrel feeder before looks good, but if you don’t go on here daily you miss a lot of projects; seen your bird houses before which kind of give me the idea of a log cabin squirrel feeder
Spunwood – Just rounded the edges on the router table, pine wood with a walnut finish, wiped on so it looks weathered, and a green stain for the roof
