Ze’ev: Some great looking boxes. How are you going to keep your bees in those, and the honey will probably leak out the corners.

Great Intarsia.

Those really look great! The bees are really cute. I also like how you left the knot hole as a natural finger pull to open the box. Very nicely executed.

Ze’ev,

Good looking boxes for sure, but I think Karson is right.

Lee, Karson, my bees live in a much modest pine box, but if you are in my neck of the woods come on in for some golden honey. No stings attached.

I’m trying to convince a buddy to drive up to the Somerset Woodworking show in Feb. If that happens I’ll see if I can make a link-up.

To bee or not to bee.. Those are fine boxes and very nice intarsia details.
