I just completed building some hive bodies, supers, bottom boards, inside top covers, and hive tops. Everything was primed and painted over the Holiday weekend. I built the bottom boards using Eastern Red Cedar, so I can see how it holds up versus pine. I was able to purchase a couple hundred board feet of Cedar for under .50 per BF, so it was cheap enough! My wife wanted something with a bit more "pizazz" than a standard flat cover, so I built the garden hive style for her. Gotta keep Momma happy ya know!
Anyway.........I thought I would share some pictures. All total, I built 2 deeps, 8 mediums, 2 inner covers, 2 bottom boards, and 1 top cover. As the winter wears on, I will be back in the shop building more. I am fortunate to be able to obtain lumber for wholesale prices, and being a woodworker with a dedicated shop, the savings add up quick. Besides that, time in the woodworking shop is always enjoyable and it helps make the winter go by quicker............which is a GOOD thing!
