Re: Log Warre
Pretty cool. Just, why have that standard Warre stuff on top, to me, a lid built in kind, ie, from part of the log, would be more in keeping and keep the totally natural look.
Other thing, from a management perspective, is when you harvest your honey, the next year if using Warre method, you will have to add those sections at the bottom, which will maybe not fit perfectly as they were the upper part of the log. But I'm sure you will work around that.
Anyhow, very cool idea. For many years I've toyed with the idea of building a hive in a totally natural log, but never got around to it due to the large amount of work that would be involved, fitting frames, etc. I'm sure many others have thought about it too, but you have actually done it.
