    What do use bee equipment for other than bees? I use boxes to stack up all grain beer brewing equipment with and today I brought home 2 piglets in hive bodies with lids nailed on.

    I was given some old brood boxes, most of which I cut down to Illinois supers, but some of them were in such poor condition, I didn't want to use them for my bees, so I stuck them on the perimeter of the vegetable garden and filled them with soil to use them as mini raised beds--planted my pumpkins, cantalope & watermelons in them. Now they can send their runners out of and away from the garden and not choke out my other plants.

    Furniture! We have two end tables in our living room made of 4 deeps (my wifes idea!). They are stained & have a piece of glass cut to fit on top of the frame rests (complete with frames, but with no foundation or wax, to look like a "real" hive).
