I'm hurting for a workshop since the Fires back in late 2017 got my bee yard, home and workshop.
I might accept an alternative to a wood shop if I can get the bees to accept the resulting hives.
I am considering a hot wire bow and cutting up styrofoam to make temporary boxes, as well as political signs (a.k.a. Coroplast) with wood ends.
Composite beehives with one material inside and another outside are a possibility. Bricks are another. Waxed cardboard is still another. I know there are nearly infinite others.
Anybody have any ideas for cheap, small, quickie production setups?
I'll just have to bit the bullet and purchase frames or wait until I can get the wood shop running.
