    If you want the photos to display in your post, choose the "IMG" link at the Photobucket site. Here is an example of the first photo:


    Once you copy that IMG link and paste it here, before you post, the link should look like this:

    [URL=http://s873.photobucket.com/user/akulch/media/IMG_0882_zps38d53aca.jpg.html][IMG]http://i873.photobucket.com/albums/ab298/akulch/IMG_0882_zps38d53aca.jpg[/IMG][/URL]


    After you post the message, the code shown just above is replaced by the image itself.

    Put em on photobucket or similar.

    Anyone ever make hives out of 1 or 2" rigid foam sheets. That stuffs pretty cheap. Mastic coated burlap could be used to add strength.

    Did you manufacture those? They look like Shastina boxes.

    Looks good. Now you can start making bottom boards, frames, medium supers, inner covers, telescopic covers, together!

    Tried that bees chew them, they tend to separate in hot weather, can't stay together when loaded with honey. Didn't even work for 5 frame nucs.

    Something almost sexy about a stack of newly built boxes.

    "almost" I wrote "almost sexy". What would be a better word? Scrumptious?

    I suppose you could have written "Scrumptious sexy" but that seems a little peculiar too. ..
