    Default Finished a 12 frame deep OB Hive.

    I modified plans that I got from here.(thank you Beesource) Just thought I would share. I built it out of red oak that I milled several years ago. The glass is from commercial sliding doors,1/4" thick and tempered(also free),hence the extra space on the left. I built the hive to match the glass. I will post better pics when I get it outside the shop.

    Cool. That's a big one. Only other I've seen that big was outside Waco, Tx at Heritage Farms (they're kinda like Amish). It was inside a building with some kinfa access to outside, and the thing swiveled on a vertical axis. But yours looks like it can be moved around to take other places for events and what not, where theirs was stationary.

    But will they ever reach the outer fringes and draw out all that foundation?

    Very nice!

    Don't know how to insert a picture of Carnac making a prediction so this will have to do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuFSWcNe8hY

    I predict...a bigger one next year that has a separate "super" area above with a robbing window. 8 mediums might not be enough. Think BIG!
