Living life married to the prettiest and smartest gal I ever met.
Self employed energy consultant / building performance analyst.
Woodworking suits me well because I inherited an engineering mind from my father and a little artistic flair from my mother.

Woodworking is my Zen and has taught me a lot about patience and planning. There aren't many other things I'd rather be doing than making noise and sawdust out in the garage.
-- Matt CueBall Rosendaul. I don't think I've ever had a cup of coffee that didn't have cat hair or sawdust in it.

I just opened up the hive and installed my first honey super on top. These are slightly shorter boxes that the bees store honey in instead of brood (typically). Some people use a queen excluder to keep her from laying brood in the honey super, but...
I took the time to construct a top feeder this weekend. Until now, I was primarily feeding the colony with a pie pan of sugar syrup set beside the hive entrance. They thoroughly enjoyed the setup, but such a practice is bad for many reasons. It at...
