    Agreed. Built two previously on different designs... gave one away and donated the other.

    I very much like the Kenyan top bar design and it was a snap to build. My only modification was a slot for a boardman feeder. Currently being enjoyed by a colony of bees, six tomato plants, and a neighborhood stray cat who enjoys playing "swat the bees."

    I have been thinking of making a slot to slide SHB traps in and out of without opening the hive up.
    I have 3 now and when I get a call for a swarm or cutout I will buy the material and build a new one in a couple of hours.

    Does the Kenyon design have a follower board? I didn't see that mentioned in Michael's description.
