    Why does it have 3 sections? What do the 3 parts mean or do? Does anyone have a detailed picture about whats inside? Thanks

    I think this video may be of some help:

    If you watch the video about how he makes the top bars, I think you can accomplish the same thing with a groove in the bar and a splint glued into it...but then again, I have Langstroth hives. ;)

    There's a ton of stuff on Youtube about top bar hives from contruction to bee management.
