Nice work! Beware, building stuff is almost as addicting as beekeeping. It may be more expensive in the long run.

From the car in the photo, I think you may already be aware of that.:lpf:

Building woodenware from "found" wood has given me great pleasure, and kept me sane over the past winter.

I refer to working wood and bees as part of my mental heath therapy. Both can leave me scratching my head trying to figure something out but they're still good stress relievers.

why would you try to figure things out when you can just copy the hive dimensions?
I just took out the original hive or from online infos to copy and cut them then assembled.
Don't want to use too much brain cells for this educational process.

They look great ! How rewarding it's going to be to see your new bees thrive and fill those hives knowing you built them yourself !

from a 40 yr carpenter (retired) who happens to be a son and grandson of carpenters, good for you, if you have a table saw get yourself a good blade and it will become quite enjoyable, good work and good luck with the bees
