My nephew is a member of a local beekeepers association and he came and asked me to build a observation bee hive for the group. It is designed where the beekeeper can pull frames from their active hives and put them on display at various events. It was a challenging build in that everything had to be tight to keep the little critters from escaping and that all wood inside the hive had to be unfinished if the bees could access it. Plexiglass in the door and rear panel assures a good view of the little guys as they work. Except for the hardware and plexiglass, I was able to use scrap wood I already had so the cost was fairly minimal.
