I had an emergency on my hands when I had to re-capture bees that had swarmed and left their hive. Having run out of hive boxes, I put them in a cardboard box and went to work in the shop making a proper hive for them. (Spoiler: All worked out fine!)

Very nice work. I am too lazy to cut finger joints, even after making a jig. Rabbets work fine for me, but it is a pleasure to see a craftsman at work.

Very nice work Paul, always enjoy your videos. I see your hive with the arch top is still looking fantastic. Like you I've also found that it is just easier to cut the frame rests with a router after the box is assembled. I just got a new cordless trim router but I don't have a 1/4" shaft rabbet bit to fit it. I'm aching to try it out for cutting frame rests once I get a bit.

Thanks. The arch top hive needed freshening up at the beginning of the season. I usually don't spend a lot of time making my boxes pretty, but that one is and exception.

The resp o rater looks a little silly, but I bet its more comfortable and less sweaty than a conventional one. Looks like your attic is as organized as mine. J
