This video shows how to finish the body of the hive.  We drill the entrance holes, add the screen to the bottom, trim follower boards, and attach the legs.  At this point bees can go in the hive with any waterproof cover over the top bars.  In Part 6 we will make a fitted cover.

I haven't started it but I need to since I'm using the hive I built in the videos for a class.  I'll try to get to it soon.
