Flat Covers with Rim for top entrance
« on: March 18, 2008, 07:19:44 PM »
I devised this top cover in order to combine top entrance options with enough space to fit pollen supplement patties.

Joseph, you are amazing!!!  You are designing stuff and I can be your bottom dollar that they work great.  I would give my kingdom to be able to even be able to nail two things together without missing the head of the nail so much and bending the nail because I only get the side of it.  My skills with building are absolutely zero.  So nice that you have this skill.  Beautiful and wonderfully great day, lovin' our life we live.  Cindi

 With you there Cindi! I am truly awed by people who can build things too. There are so many talented people on this forum! Being mechanically challenged I can't look at plans & decipher em, they just look like a bunch of lines!  BUT if I can see the real thing or watch someone do it, then I can monkey copy it! I can hand raise baby birds, rabbits,kittens, probably even badgers if I had to! Jody

Jody, that is how I learn too, always have, try to read instructions to do something, rather a difficult thing.  But I still can't build things at all, even if I am shown the concept, wah, wah, wah, but give me gardening, animals or a keyboard, I am off to the races, have a wonderful and beautiful day, Cindi
