Anyone know of a good set of plans for a TBH on the net?

Here are two that I found useful when designing mine.  There is also another site with the Les Crowder design that I can't find right now, that was also good.

There is plenty of info here in the forums too.  Use the search function.

If you are interested in TBHs, look at James Satterfield:

There are plans for mine here:

Mine is a little different because of the windows.

I can't say that they are good, but I have been trying to plan out the two TBH's I will make soon.  I haven't finalized the plans, but I have started a blog (topbarbees.wordpress.com).  I have some pictures there and when I finalize it (or maybe before), I will post the complete plans.  I make the plans in Google Sketchup to get a 3D model with all the dimensions.

I have the sides and ends of my TBH glued and am getting ready to put the box together.  I have not figured out how to do my entrance  yet.  I would consider a top entrance but I don't know how having an entrance at the end top bar would work with the lid on.  Could a person put holes or a slot near the top of the end of the box just below the bottom of the lid?

Here is my TBH with upper entrances.  There is a 6" x1/2" entrance near each end.   Hard to see, but this was taken during the winter and you can see the white of the entrance reducers.  This works quite well.

Thanks Robo, I believe I will do something similar to yours.
