Honey boxes

My first year as a beekeeper yielded a few pounds of honey, and provided me with the perfect opportunity to combine my two crafts. I used a variety of left over wood from previous projects, and even some veneer. The hinge is a simple piece of leather from an old belt. The white bucket in the background is the proverbial “honey pot”.

Very good. I think your being a bee keeper is a gr8 thing. Very awesome! If people don’t know, honey should be one of the 1st things to be on your “in case of emergency”, or, in easy terms WSHTF. When __ Hits The Fan.

Those boxes look as sweet as the honey. Great way to fulfill your dreams.

The bee’s down here are not thriving at all. All of the planting for the farmers have killed all of the wild bee off I’m guessing.

All of the Watermelon and fruit farmers bring in hives every year to pollinate their crops. i hope the seed companies give up their fight to keep putting their chemicals on top of the seeds.

Thumbs up. Looking good on both fronts, honey and hobby. Keep at it.

Perfect combination of two hobbies, Zipsss. Hope the bees don’t decide to use the boxes instead of the hives. Umm, you did make the hives yourself, of course?
