At first glance I thought I was looking at a coffin…...then I opened it and saw it was a bee hive, as you call it. How many of us ever think of making our own coffin?? A pine box or some elaborate creation that the pro’s post on here with inlays and wood hinges…...And I like your moniker, Jesus is ok with me too.

Thanks for the mention.
I like the observation window so you can monitor comb construction.
I have considered building a top bar hive. Maybe your post will be motivation enough for me to make one now.
How wide did you make your top bars? 1 3/8” ?
