Re: Sneak Peek - New bottom board from H.Thomas Krantz Beekeeping Supply
You do nice work.
Now the mix of negative and positive.
That size landing board is out of proportion to the hive.
It will get bumped anytime someone works around the hive.
The way the grain runs it will break off.
Turn the board ninety degrees, cleat at the bottom frame, make sure the bark side is up(no ponding), tilt the hive forward slightly and it might last.
Since you have that fancy piece of equipment, you could do the side half of an elipse just as easily.
Wouldn't stick out as far, less wood needed, more in proportion, neat look.
Second thought maybe I'll do it.(after my nap)
I don't have a CNC, but I can do a perfect radius, or elipse with my router and some homemade production jigs.
You guys are adding to the hobby beekeeping experience.
