These are my new hives. The ones I built last year were mainly based on Dr. Mangum's design. These are four feet long, eleven inches deep with a 17.5 inch top bar. I guess these are a cross between Dr. Mangum's, and Michael Bush's top bar hives. Comments? Suggestions? Questions? Let me know what you all think.

I really like the way you cut that bottom board, great idea. How did you calculate that angle and did you transfer it to the top of your side boards so your top bars lay flatter?
