Ok. Here are some images. I am thinking of putting the feeders in the box. In the pictures the feeder divider is not yet nailed in just in case yall jump in and tell me how stupid that is.

I am thinking that I can put an entrance on the very same end, underneath the feeders. It would be a short tunnel. The feeders would be directly over the tunnel. does this sound right, or wrong?

If you plan on using a end entrance. I would cut a slot in the bottom of the follower board where a boardman feed will fit. Not a fan of the boardman feeder but the work well for this application. If using a center entrance use two follower boards and use one of them with the feeder slot. Here are some pics.

Awesome pictures. It was so picture heavy that my desktop instantly froze right up. You made me go out to my truck and get on my laptop. I got some new ideas for my second build though. Thank You
