Ohio-based Michael Dutko must be nuts about squirrels, or maybe he's just a little nuts. Either way, he's crafted an amazing "Nutty Bar" that offers seven kinds of nuts on tap for his backyard bushy-tailed critters. Hilarious!
Dutko said he built it to help his neighbor with her bird-watching hobby.
"The whole reason I even started to make this is because my neighbor bird watches with her daughter and told me all of the squirrels keep getting in her way," Dutko told CNN. "I didn't even tell her what I was going to do, I just built it and put it back there and when she saw it, she just started cracking up."
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.
Dutko's favorite part of the bar is its quirky bathroom sign: "Nuts" and "No Nuts."
The project, which measures about 25 inches wide and 16 inches tall, took him eight hours to design and build.
After posting a video on YouTube showing the build process, Dutko said he was "overwhelmed" with comments and requests to purchase the bar. He immediately applied for a design patent and is now planning to launch a business to sell The Nutty Bar for about $175 – $200.
