The super easy way to build a squirrel feeder!!!

Step 1: You'll Need

1 board 1x6x4
Some wood screws
Some corn
Some tools (saw, drill)

Step 2: Cut the Wood

Cut two pieces, one 11" long and one 5 " long.
The short piece will be the base.
With a 4 foot board you'll have enough to make 3 feeders.

Step 3: Drill Some Holes

Measure 1.5 inches from the bottom and make a line. Then pre drill 3 holes the size of your screws.

Step 4: Attach the Base to the Long Piece

Line the base up with the holes and drive in your screws. Make sure the base is level.

Step 5: Drive Another Screw

Drive a screw through the base from the bottom. This of course is to impale and kill the squirrel. Just kidding, it holds the corn.

Step 6: Just Add Corn

With the pointing end of the corn pointing up simply twist the corn onto the screw!

Step 7: Attach It to a Tree

Attach the feeder to a tree. Do this by driving a screw on the top and bottom. Be sure to put it high enough for the squirrel to avoid cats and dogs but low enough so that you can add corn when needed.

Step 8: Enjoy
