    Default Forest Hills Woodworking Double Nuc Box

    Ike at Forest Hills made up a double Nuc for us in a 10 frame deep.
    He also made two more divided 10 frame deep boxes.

    Tomorrow night I plan to switch the Nuc from this temporary box:



    Into this new one:



    Ike did a great job.
    Also picked up some small cell foundation for the second box and hope to get that drawn out before the cold.
    The third box is for feeding with mason jars if needed.

    We only have one Nuc for this year as an experiment and plan to over-winter it on top of one of our ten frame hives.
    Did a hive inspection this AM. The Nuc is storing nectar and lots of pollen.
    Keeping our fingers crossed for its survival.

    Mike,

    I googled it and I don't think he does. He's an Amish guy here in Lancaster County PA. I heard about him through my bee club.

    MMM-
    I don't believe he does becouse he is amish. Its nice having a shop within 15 min of my house. I make most of my woodware but I have bought some stuff from him.

    I was not sure if the Amish did computers or not. However the idea and workmanship looks good. Thank you for the response.

    This is as close as you can get for a website right now:
    http://www.localamishfarms.com/amish_woodworking.htm

    He does have a nice color brochure and price list that he could send you.
    More than likely he will not answer when you call (even though I did get him one time like that) so just leave a message.
    Ike is very good about returning calls.

    Made the switch yesterday and the bees were a bit shy to try their new condo.
    This morning everything looks like its back to normal.
