Michael Dutko, 35, of Hilliard, Ohio, has been a wood carver most of his life, but recently he became Internet famous. His neighbor told him she and her daughter like to bird watch in their yard, but squirrels keep getting in the way. Without telling her, he found a way to make her yard squirrel-free.
It only took him eight hours to design and built a squirrel bar with seven different nuts on tap. It's 25 inches wide and 16 inches tall, and when her neighbor saw it, she "cracked up." After posting a video on YouTube showing the build process, Dutko was overwhelmed with requests to buy the bar. He applied for a designer patent and plans to launch a business to sell The Nutty Bar for about $175. (Don't try to guess what bar's restrooms are named.)
