Good video!  How old is the home?  I noticed that there was no insulation in the outer walls.

Perhaps Shane and I could help yous lot with some eddication about Queensland.

1.  It's uncomfortably swelteringly hot
2.  We like it hot and insulation reverses the oppressive heat too much
3.  Our beesuit consists of singlet, shorts and thongs (which accounts for the 20 stings I got the other day)

As for a geography lesson about places such as Burpengary, you can't go past this song. http://www.gregchampion.com.au/lyricslibrary/DontCallWagga.html

haha, I haven't heard that one for a while.

Hawk the house is probably 15 years old, but that section i was working on was just the garage wall. However its not common here to use insulation in the walls.

Difference in the cultures... here it can be hot enough to melt the shingles off the roof and half the men would refuse to wear shorts.  Which can be a bad thing or a good thing, depending on who you're looking at. grin  Great job, by the way.

ShaneJ,

Thanks for the great cut out video.  By the time I finally get to do one, I'm sure I will feel more confident having "shadowed" you on yours.   Wink

I'm glad you liked it Tracy. When it comes time to do your first cut out, the only advice I can give you is to make sure you have plenty of time up your sleeve Undecided.

Don, they are corks mate. They keep the flies away from your face Wink 

Would you believe corks are hard to come by now?  I have searched all over town and even the pubs say most wine bottles don't use corks anymore.  How can I possibly construct a decent hat if I can't find corks??  Mind you, when I went into one pub they told me not to leave till I picked up my bottle caps and handed me 3 full bags of them.  They know I'm a lagerphone maker.

 I am not seeking corks for your typical akubra.  The music group I attend is having a crazy hat competition.  So far it involves a colander, buffalo horns, a wind vane, ducklings, sheep bells, a horn and a windup music box gadget.  But without the corks it will be like a ship without a sail.   I dunno

Very impressive, Shane! You (and the bees) were calm and poised and methodical. I'm envious. I don't feel quite so composed when I'm in the thick of it.

Thanks Liz.

I learned from JP's videos that taking your time doing the job and having fun along the way makes it easier. Also I believe that people worry to much about getting a sting causing them to be on edge and possibly a little clumsy. You just need to relax because the bees don't want to hurt you.
I found I was having much more fun and was enjoying my bees more once I took the gloves and jacket off and I feel that I am more gentle with the bees without the gloves. I still use a veil though as I do have bad reactions if I get a sting.

Thanks, I found a homebrew shop and they have corks!

I need to put everything together and then ponder about more things to add, and then I can fire up the camera.

Duck, I guess the mozzies don't care for big lumps of cork hitting them up the proboscis.

Shane, how do you tie the cork?

What makes you think I'm an expert?  grin

I have always seen the string going through the cork with a knot on the bottom. So I would drill a small hole through to make poking the string in easier.

Dang, if that hat doesn't scream there's going to be some serious beer drinking going on I don't know what does.  Not a heavy drinker myself but whatever goes down in that hat has got to involve some fun.

Whatever gave you that idea, D?  That banjo windvane is made from a lemon squash can.  Actually there was some serious music making going on that weekend.  This is the example of what you can do with beer cans AKA go away to work and what they get up to when you are gone: the aussie windvane.
