Looks like your off to a great start!  Does it have a solid, open, or screened bottom.? Smiley

It looks really good and the 1/2" material probably makes it pretty light too.  How did you put it together?  Nails? Glue? Screws?

I've been building hive bodies for the last couple of weekends, and I keep having this picture go through my head of a hive full of bees falling apart in my hands if I don't do a good job.

Woodscrews(sheetrocking type) and Gorilla glue.  I use that on all my hive bodies, frames, covers.  It's awesome stuff.
