    Default Beek Toolbox

    I just finished this up, and had to share. Scrap oak lumber leftovers from my two top bar hives, stain/poly, and a piece of copper grounding wire we dug out of my sister's yard. Total cost- $0.

    The inside dimension is just over 19", so I could make a hanger under the handle to store spare top bars if needed.

    Thanks for looking,
    John

    Nice looking toolbox!

    Hopefully that copper wire was not part of the power pole or house electrical earth grounding system!

    Nice "old school" toolbox. I built one almost exactly like it for my dad. I've got all my stuff in a 7 gallon bucket with lid, it keeps all your stuff together, you can catch swarms in it, and you've got a comfortable seat when you get where you're going.

    Great idea , my hives might be a little further away than I'd like and I don't want to get up there only to realize I forgot my smoker hive tool etc. How about a tool list for us newbs , the essentials to always have with you for general hive work and for when you get that call for a swarm .

    Best use of a top bar hive I've seen yet!
