Thanks guys all of you. With your guidance I have now built about 12 deeps and just getting started on my mediums. Only 3 of those so far. I found a lumber mill over here that has end cuts that they just give away. Most are about 30-32" long and about 14" wide so perfect for the hive bodies. I have been thrilled to actually use the table say and such for something. The material is all doug fir, or other pine so I think that it will work ok. I am working on my plans for SBB's and caps. I have read all the posts and will work through my plans and let you guys know. I am so new to this but it is fun learning.
Question,,, none of the hives I got, 13 of them, 12 with bees one without, had inner covers?? I wonder why, they look like they were abandoned for a while... Just a thought.. Let me know what you guys think..
