So here we go…. Western Red Cedar has arrived from the timber merchants and it’s time to start building the first hive.
Before I start, are there any modifications other than those below which you would recommend?
I’m going to put observation windows in the side of the boxes, a 30mm arris rail in the corners to prevent cold spots, I think I’ll probably make castellated top bar spacers. I might as well dovetail the joints on the boxes, for no other reason than I have the tools & they look pretty.
