Here's the stands I have made for my use went a little crazy yesterday and made 7 was only going to make 3 . So now I have 10 stands like this . The 4 aren't complete have to get more ant blockers and bolt,nuts and washers to finish the adjustable legs.



Here's the first 3 I made



They can hold 1-5 hives .



Thinking about building some to just hold one hive for when I need to move 1 hive at a different location .
Also thinking about build'n a couple to see if I can sell them also .

My only concern is how do they get fastened to the ground? The posts are too short to sink into the ground. Setting them on the blocks coupled with the high center of gravity would make them pretty easy to topple in a strong wind.
Thanks!
