  1. Projects Wood Carving of a Squirrel

    In the fall is the perfect time to carve a hardworking squirrel. After about a week, I thought I would post a picture of my progress. At this point, you can see that I got the majority of the shape of the animal, and my decision to begin to show the hair. I want to get that detail before I...
  2. 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...
  3. Barnwood Dining table for two squirrels or one greedy one :)

    Barnwood Dining table for two squirrels or one greedy one :) Pretty straight forward, I was piddling around..and made a frame out of 1×6 barnwood with an angled 15 degree roof, put a table and two chairs in there and epoxied the shank of a couple of big nails out of the table to put the corn...
  4. Apple Bird Feeder

    These are 6 piece bird feeders that took about 30 minutes to make. Got the idea out of a scroll saw magazine. There is a peanut butter recipe that you can use also to feed the squirrels with. I think the apple is easier and less expensive though.
  5. Squirrel Feeder

    This is my first project posting here and i hope it shows up. In the journey to get some christmas gifts put together this is one of the few things i am doing so there will be more to come in the next 30 days. Anyhow story on this one goes, used some pine and put together this in a few days time...
  6. oven squirrel

    I had to make a quickie X-Mas present, so I made an Oven Squirrel for pulling / pushing oven racks. It is made of maple and finished with shellac. It also took me longer than I expected to make.
  7. the circus is coming

    a potential contender for the Gorilla Glue contest. This fits into the "outdoor entertainment" aspect of the contest, however since the glue is only used to bond wood to wood, and not wood to another material, I'm taking my chances with a mixed media birdhouse in the contest…. with so few...
  8. Squirrel picnic table

    Our family friend had an additional request for feeding squirrels, not only birdies need to have lunch. Made from cedar fence pickets (sanded), and has a mounting bracket for the fence post. A golf tee is pin that holds the table in place. I used a plastic mayonnaise jar to hold the peanuts...
  9. First serving tray

    I saw this Squirrel pattern in a woodworking catalog and I liked the contrasting colors of walnut and maple, so I bought the kit. Now I usually don't read the Instructions on anything, unless I get stuck and run into problems. There were no instructions available on how to make this squirrel...
  10. Bit of neighborhood whimsie

    Like a lot of places I'm sure there seem to be more people walking around the neighborhood as of late. Our local school has had a few things to encourage people to do scavenger hunts and other things such as stuff animal zoos where people put animals in the windows so parents and kids can go for...
  11. The Circus comes to this town..too

    It's a squirrel feeder or free entertainment depending on how you look at it. After my B-I-L posted his "fur flinging feeding forum", I promised somewhere in the discussion to post mine, which I modeled after one that I built for my father. Much to Obi's displeasure I too used left-over...
  12. Squirel and Oak

    Believe it or not, well I guess you will believe when you look close, this is engraved on a pellet gun. This pellet gun was to be used by the client to persuade squirrels to visit a different yard so it was only fitting to engrave a squirrel. If you look close you can see the paw print on the...
  13. Squirrel Feeder

    Feeder is made from red cedar. It has a storage bin in one end that holds nuts or corn. The top is hinged to allow access to the feed bin. I covered the roof with roofing metal before making individual cedar shingles. I knew the shingles would leak so the metal under the shingles won't let...
  14. Squirrel on a Backrest

    This one has Birches in the background.
  15. Scrambling Squirrel on Backrest

    A squirrel with a dirty face.
  16. Hanging squirrel feeder

    I saw an idea for a squirrel feeder where they used a gallon glass jar to hold the nuts. I thought it would be kind of neat to make a little house with the Jar attached in a hole on the side wall. The squirrel would have to enter the house by the door, and then go into the jar to feast. Found...
  17. Mantel before Christmas. ...only 11 months late

    Finally finished a mantel for my wife, mantel was made out of walnut, carved 4 window(was aiming for old irish cottage windows, something that someone would be showing off that their grandfather's grandfather built the house and carved these windows kinda look). Attached to the back of the...
  18. Squirrel Maze

    This project was done as a surprise Xmas gift in 2008 for my wonderful neighbors, Chad and Rosie. Rosie adores squirrels - Chad tolerates them. I would be happy if they all stayed on their property. Thus was born the squirrel maze! It's designed that food is placed at the very end of the...

    Built on commission for a gentleman at our church who happens to be Native American. He asked for a box to hold his eagle feathers used during ceremonies with other tribal members. Made from aromatic red cedar to keep the moths away. Machine cut dovetails from my Porter Cable jig. The handle...
