    Re: Thinking of making my own hives

    I'm still looking at the table router also. It's not like I am going to be doing hundreds of boxes. And I can do frames with the router. Not sure. I have a little while to think about it.

    Thanks...

    Matt,

    Looks like after you get your jig setup correctly it should not be that hard. I have most of the equipment now. All I need to buy is a router table and the Rockler part.

    drlonzo,

    That's what I like about the girls. They have a habit of doing their own thing, no matter what I try to tell them.
