I took the practical part of the Certified Beekeeper exam today and got stumped and still am not sure of the answer.  I had to name all the parts of the frame, for goodness sake. I knew the top bar and the bottom bar.  What is the name of the piece on the end?  I said the side bar but that is wrong - is it the end bar???   huh  huh  huh

I hope you all will still respect me in the morning if I fail this thing. 

The practical part was hard starting with lighting the smoker.  I succeeded but I just can't make a lighter work and it took me tons of tries.  Finally I did it.  I think I did OK with the outside in the hive part but then we had to go into a room and identify all kinds of stuff - most of it I knew but diseases are not something I know well - I know the names of them and the symptoms but I have never had to identify them in a frame of bees..... tongue

So I am studying like crazy tonight to memorize medications that I will NEVER use in my hives for this written exam tomorrow.

Yes, but now you have list of names so you know what not to use. Indtead of just saying I don't like chemicals you can say I don't like Fluvalinate, Coumaphos, Menthol crystals, Terramycin, Paradichlorobenzene crystals,and Fumadil-B.

Today at a lecture on equipment for the hive, I found out that end bars are what they call those things on the sides of the frames and "ears" is what the tag ends on the top bars are called! 

I also saw a fantastic demo of building a wooden frame in which the fellow had a jig for everything.  He had a wonderful jig for frame building that I want to get someone to make for me.  He also had a device for wiring frames that was extraordinary.  He had copied a picture in Bee Culture but said he thought the plans were on BeeSource.

Like I've said before, I wish I had taken shop instead of home ec -

i think walter kelly sells a frame jig.
as far as woodworking skills necessary for beekeeping...they are not that demanding. the problem is having enough space for the woodworking equipment and supplies AND the beekeeping equipment and supplies.

Walter T. Kelley has already made them all for you.  Smiley

They have a "frame nailing device", a "foundation device" a spool holder and an electric embedder.  They only thing they don't have is a wire crimper.  Smiley

Since I don't use wire - that won't bother me!  grin  grin  grin   

Thanks for the resource - I've been pleased with everything I've ordered from Walter Kelley - wish I had ordered the wax tube fastener there since yours from there came with directions  evil
