The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
A friend of ours, the saw doctor, has skills in chainsaw sculpture and he decided to turn his hand to an unusual bed hive.
I shared a photo of it in that post. Now after I posted a number of people asked for more information about the hive. So here’s a post about that hive.
He was working based on a photograph that we had already sent him. It’s quite a difficult skill to create a hollow object for a hive that has got an intricate carving on the outside.
It was his first attempt.
He then hollowed out the inside but realised that there are a few spots which were a bit too close to the external carving.
It has long vertical frames for the bees in contrast to the normal horizontal frames that we use in standard hives. These can be accessed under his hat.
I think this-is going to be a great addition to the hive family. It’ll be interesting to see what we do with it next.
