    Default Great day in the shop

    I had a great day in the wood shop.
    5 -10 frame top feeders
    4 - nuc feeders
    4 - deep nuc's
    10 - 10 frame swarm traps
    sealed all 21 feeders / new and old
    I'm starting to get caught up after a late start this winter.

    Very satisfying.
    I have 44 boxes airing out that I will be assembling frames for next week.
    I have a lot of catching up to do.

    Sorry Mr.Beeman
    When you get on a roll you aren't thinking of pictures.
    I will take some when we get home after church.

    Put a 2x4 thru the boxes and set the 2x4's on sawhorses or ???, then just "spin" them around on the 2x4 to paint.............

    You hate painting, but yet you mask the frame rest area before painting the boxes?



    Nice color!

    It was -12f when I got up this morning so painting in the garage really isn't an option today. I'm painting 10 brood boxes and the supers will wait until nicer weather. I can get away with painting in the dining area because I'm single!

    Yeah, I tape them up so I don't slobber paint all over the inside. (I have some OCD tendencies like that) As to the color, it's a quart of hardware store error paint. The more I look at it, the more I think I should be fishing!
