I just worked out how to use my photobucket account and have started to add some posts/photos I've been saving up.

In Oldtimer's great non-grafting queen thread he uses a queen compartment hive. I made one last year by cutting an excluder to 9 5/8, putting a groove in a deep before assembling it, and then hot gluing the edges together. I cut off some of the excess excluder. Then I nailed the excess in strips to the bottom of the rest of the box so it wouldn't wobble. Adding a flat metal excluder to the box keeps the queen where you want her.
