I just finished my first 'do it yourself' woodenware[actually second]. I designed a SSB/Varroa Trap from images from the web and blogs. No ledges under the screen, straight drop from the hive walls to the ground. Sliding tray for inspections....out the back! My hive stand was the first project and it worked out nicely, I think.

I'll try to get some images posted to share.

I'm desperately hustling to get my beeyard in order; only two hives, but they're in my backyard and I'm trying to make them as 'pleasing' to the eye as functional.
