    Default portable single-frame observation box?

    With two young children in school, I'd like to have a small observation box holding a single frame that I can bring to their classrooms once a year.

    In the past, I've borrowed a very nice 5-frame observation hive, but it's much too big and heavy for a 30 minute talk to 1st graders. I'd like something smaller.

    Anyone have plans or comments on building such a thing?

    I made a two frame one for schools (see photo), but you can cut the dimensions down to make a one frame if you want. Nice thing about a two frame unit is having both a brood frame and a honey frame on display.

    Thank you, Barry, that one looks nice.

    I'd like to take a closer look, but I can't seem to get the drawing to enlarge and still stay clear enough to read it.
