TBH Project

Got the timber yesterday for two new TBH's, 21 Meters in all. I was just about to start loading it into my car and spotted it was at best 20mm. After a quick chat with the saleman I left the store with lots of planks of about 27mm thick. I guess I was ignorant about buying prepared sawn timber, thinking I would get what I asked for... Double check before you buy is my advice.

Started building this hive and so far its going well. I'll update with new pictures as I go to those you see below.   

The build is going well, and so far I am very pleased with it. I decided I will go with a hole entrance, as I want to cut down the chances of robbing as I have a lot of wasps and other bee colonies in my area.
