Gave Lecture and Built tops and bottom boards

I attended the Austin Area Beekeepers meeting yesterday. About 20 showed, but no speaker, so I stepped in and gave a Beekeeping 101 class.

I spent Sunday morning with a powersaw cutting up old 2×6 into thick bottom boards and really heavy migratory tops.  The tops are a bit heavy but it saves the need to put rocks on top of them. Knocked out 3 BB and 4 Tops.  Cutting holes in the BB is too much trouble to make screened BB.  Most likely these will go on hives I’ll sell later, anyway, so no reason to make the effort. Especially if a buyer wants a solid BB.
