Thank you Michael, for both your informative Bushfarms site and for your responses on this forum. I greatly appreciate your help. I started just this past Spring, mistakenly thinking I'd have "organic honey," LOL. But after reading a bit, I quickly bought a second hive that went foundationless. All future hives will be foundationless as well. I relied heavily on your site for help with the foundationless, and so much more. And I get detail questions answered here, from you and others. It's been a wonderful combination.

You are a giant in the movement toward foundationless and your (good) reputation probably goes quite a bit further than you know.

Best Regards,
Christy

So...... who is this Michael Bush you guys are talking about? grin

Yes, Michael.... thanks for your excellent work with bees and your willingness to share what you know.  Oh, and I find it very ironic that you are the most prolific poster at Beemaster.  I was going back reading your old posts and found this from February 19, 2005.

Anyway, welcome to the board and I hope we see you around here frequently.

I can barely keep up with Beesource.  So I wouldn't count on it.  Smiley

Maybe BEEMASTER can help out with expenses by publishing an e-book on all the advice that Michael Bush has given?

Michael's Mantras

The SAGES Advice

Bush's Beatitudes

What 'cha think?

Yes, he's kind of a big deal. (sorry to talk about you like you're not here Mike.) I'm working on posting often too - only because something bothers me (a man) literally just a tiny bit, about being titled "queen" - anything.

>Would a tanzanian tbh probably work best?

There is nothing wrong with either a KTBH or a TTBH.

>If so with a lot of 1x12s on hand(3/4-11)what dimentions if I want to keep the possibility of reg foundation use?

I assume you mean frames.  I wouldn't see any reason to use foundation, but it's nice to be able to put frames in.  If you look up plans for a Langstroth hive and make the 16 1/4" dimension 48" instead (or 48 3/4") and make it 3/4" deeper (to make the space that bottom board would make) you'll have a 33 frame hive (or bars if you use those).  The bars will be 19".  The comb guides will be 18 1/4".  I'd make about 18 1 1/2" wide and 18 1 1/4" wide.  I had trouble with collapse on the deeps but others seem to do ok with them.  Maybe it was just a very sudden flow and a lot of heavy new comb that was my problem, but I went to mediums, which works out to a one by eight without ripping it, but if you have a lot of 1 by 12's you could rip it out of that, or save them for something else and buy one by eights...

If you don't care about putting frames in, I'd make the KTBH.  With the one by 12s it will work well.
