Not quite done but functional and built out of mostly reclaimed/recycled stuff.

Going to add a tray on one end to hold frames before or after decapping, a cover for the top and over the electrical.

A few candles for this years cappings, but going to need to make some process improvements in refining the sludge/honey out of the wax.

Thanks,

1500/3000 watt hot water tank element at 120 volt. Does take an hour come up to full temp and get the wax melting. If it gets to be too slow I could always run 240 volt on the element and get 3000 watts of heat.

Yes, the bottom and sides are covered in 2 layers of cork. Which looked to be a pretty good product from the stand point of R value and being able to tollerate heat and water without loose glass filliments or any thing else that would be a problem in the honey.

I do plan to make an insulated cover though for just melting wax.
