Built a few hive stands today
It was in the low-twenties today with sun so I opened the barn and slapped together a few hive stands.
Here's the view out my barn door.
I use a jig to hold the treated 2x4 pieces in place while I assemble them with 3" coated deck screws.
Some details of the jig.
2 48" and 3 16" pieces. Out in the field, they sit on two concrete blocks. Two hives per stand.
Less than an hour later and there are enough stands for ten hives.
