    It will take some time. I thought I would do the key parts first for those that know how to do basic box building already, then go back and pull it together into a finished hive. There are, of course, a thousand ways to make the outside box and finish it. The inside are pretty straight forward. I'll try to post somemore this weekend. The OB hive has a queen now and she appears to be starting to lay. They are sucking down a pint of syrup every 3 days.

    My Dad is building on and I was telling him of these plans for a center pivot entrance. Now I can't remember how to do it. Seems there was some sort of plumbing fixture that worked for this.

    it's the piece that comes out of the bottom of a sink
    called a tail piece I think
    I built mine like that and it works great
    I'm lucky and my wife does stained glass and made me a glass washer to sit in the joint and take the load
