Ohio Man Builds a Backyard Squirrel Bar With 7 Varieties Of Nuts On Tap

Michael Dutko, a 35-year-old hobbyist, has been creating art and household items from wood for most of his life, but it's his fun twist on a squirrel feeder that's made him an Internet sensation. "The Nutty Bar” — which is attached to Dutko's backyard fence — was built to help his neighbor with her bird-watching hobby and by keeping the squirrels from getting in her way. Lucky squirrels who find their way to the bar get to choose from seven different nuts named after beers: Cashew Dunkel, Peanut Pilsner, Almond Ale, Walnut Stout, Sunflower Saison, Pecan Porter and Pistachio Pale Ale. The bar, which measures about 25 inches wide and 16 inches tall, took Dutko eight hours to design and build. After his YouTube video went viral, Dutko immediately applied for a design patent and is now planning to launch a business to sell The Nutty Bar for about $175-$200.
