Wow! Has it been that long?

It seems like yesterday that I posted here but that was months ago. I have been hard at work with my day job while stealing moments to visualize and streamline the manufacturing process on building my hives. I need a couple new tools. I am hoping Santa will bring them. Then I can get my brother to churn out several TBH (The Best Hive)

While continuing to read what other people are doing I came across a couple of good ideas.

Thomas over at came up with the following.¤t=StarterStripsinstallingNov07006.jpg

I can’t seem to find the link right now but Phil at had a wonderful idea on how to move bees from a lang hive to topbar.

Mrspock at biobees showed me this site and it is a wonderful find.

But my best find was this site. It is long dead and was written in Polish and English. I find this particularly fascinating because many of the same issues I see batted around the forums today were addressed by this guy a long time ago and no one seems to have noticed.

So maybe if Santa will leave me a couple of new tools I will get several of my TBH built this winter. Then I can give a couple to long time beeks this spring for their input.
