Re: making hive bodies and supers
If I had only known that beekeeping would quickly mean building out a full wood shop I would have done it sooner! After a year of bees I decided I wanted to make my own boxes. That meant I was able to talk myself into building out a full wood shop–making my hive bodies the most expensive boxes ever made! The beauty is I now have year-round hobbies. I can't wait for winter so I can get into the shop, where I still make new supers, nucs etc but also turn pens, bowls and make small boxes from exotic wood. Then by February, I'm looking forward to spring so I can get back to the bees. It's been a nice match.
