    Edit... Not sure if this goes here or should be in general section...

    I have asked other places and have been reminded of a great IWF link for skep making. What I need is to find where I can get the tools needed to make skeps. I have been asked to keep an apiary display at our county fair again this year and was thinking about historical beekeeping. I want to make a skep by hand and be able to show the tools and how to use them. For the future, if I can find a good hive in a tree that I can cut down, show how bee gums where used. As well as TBH and other styles used around the world and in history. I'm kind of running out of time since the fair is in September. Any help out there is really appreciated.

    Send a PM to bcrazy. He still uses skeps in England. He may be able to get what tools you need.
