Expanding our Beeyard
Thought I'd try my hand at woodworking again. Been a few years since I made anything. My dad and I have spent the winter as woodworkers and the final results turned out pretty good. Now the wait till the end of April when the package bees arrive.
nice looking woodwork there flyingpig. Don't look like you lost any woodworking skills.
Thanks, for the compliment. I think the hardest part we had was dovetailing all of the joints on the boxes. We were really happy with how everything turned out.

Very nice. Good stand also. Better get working on more supers...two are never enough. :eek:
Beautiful set up but .....
What I would do is spray the wood stand first with salt water good and let it dry. Then I would "paint" it with used motor oil and let it dry in the sun.
Now you have a stand that would last 10 yrs or more.
And of course you are not going to leave all the boxes like that regardles of the season and size of the family.
We decided that we are going to make up ten more honey supers this next weekend with some of the boards we had left over. That should give me at least four supers on each hive. The stand worked out perfect for my hives. You would never know it had another life as a shipping pallet for a cooling tower pump. I couldn't beat the price either...Freebie from work
