Well...here I go...

It's either thow out all the junk I have out in the sheds or do something with them.

So, I decided to put together a TBH with an old plastic storage tub I have lying around.

I am going to cut a slot at one end at the bottom for the hive entrance and make end caps at each end of the frams to keep the bees below the top level. I will also fit wood along the supporting sides that hold up the frames to keep the bees in.

Am thinking of cutting out along the bottom of each side...end to end...and attaching 1/8 inch screen.

It should hold 18 or 19 frames.
The top closes nicely with a complete seal around the top.
