    Default Hive body manufacturing (from boards)

    Manufacturing woodenware from lumber may be a way to save some money - compared to buying hive bodies from a vendor. But, the trade-off is the time to do the milling, whether you have access to power tools (particularly a tablesaw) and the availability of affordably priced lumber in your area.
