I’ve managed to get out to the shop at least a few hours a week over the last month or two. I’m always a late starter on the winter projects and then I scramble in the early spring. I have managed to get 10 deep nucs built and a few deep hive bodies. I’ve also assembled some frames. Enough to get started at least.
These are pine end boards with the frame rest rabbet. And rough sawn hard maple boards completely unprepared, butt jointed for the sides. It’s a quick simple way to build nucs. They probably didn’t cost much more than about $15.00 worth of material and whatever time I had involved. The picture on the left was a stack of hard maple that turned into these side boards. My shop is a wreck, I think I’m going to have to take an hour or so to straighten up before I start on my next project.
I hope everyone is having a productive winter. If you like what your reading please subscribe and feel free to comment or ask any questions you might have.
