    Hi,
    I have been reading about TBH and I am in the befggining of beekeeping but this is something I wanted to experiment on.
    So I went and built a set of frames for a box I am about to build,
    the frames are a different size, and the more I think about it I understand the whole standard size thing, but I wanted to give it a try and have something larger than lust the p" deep frame.
    they are square, even though it looks not.
    The wire is not tight just straight, and it is 12" by 19", glues and screwed together. I made a jig to assemble them.

    Just thought I would put this out there and get peoples attention.

    the next set will be the small 5.5" for comb honey with the same topbar configuration.

    thanks,

    should work. technically not a top bar hive. Actually your top bar design is very close to the original Lang.

    hehe, that's what i was thinking, more or less on the frames.

    frames without foundation.

    more like a more natural version of a modern langstroth

    You should look up Charles Martin Simon. He modified the hoffman frame to be foundationless. Really not a difficult modification.
