    Default My medium frame Ulster Observation Hive

    My Ulster Observation Hive has been christened...



    The box is from Brushy Mountain and the top assembly is homebuilt from scraps of oak and mahogany...

    Very nice!
    Is it set up with an excluder to keep the queen up top?
    Does it have an entrance your do you just drop the frames in it for display ?

    Yes, there is an excluder.
    A piece of plastic excluder is held in a notch.

    I haven't put an entrance in it yet.

    It's lovely.

    A question- what are the dowel looking pieces? Are they screws to hold the pieces together? Or?

    Those are pieces of oak dowels that have "hanger bolts" screwed into them. I didn't want to use drawer pulls.... Threaded inserts are used in the box and top assembly.
