A set of downloadable plans have been added to the “In the Beekeeper’s Workshop” page on the MBA web site! This new series of plans takes you step-by-step on building your own woodenware, starting with the hive stand and ending with the telescoping top cover. Each set of plans includes detailed drawings, photos, list of materials, cut sheet and dimensions required for the different styles commonly found in a bee yard.
The plans can be downloaded and are free of charge.
You may find that building your own equipment adds an extra dimension to the joys of beekeeping. Besides, the cost of doing it yourself is hard to beat when compared to commercially purchased hives.
