  1. Solar WaxMelter

    The box is made of plywood and pine, insulated in the inside and topped with a double pane glass window on the top. In a mild day,of 80 F in the sun, the temperature inside the box reached 176F more than enough to melt the wax from the beehives.
  2. Beehive Equipment

    My wife and I got into keeping honeybees this year. Pictured is a new hive that I've built to accommodate a new group of bees that I will possibly get when my present bees swarm in the spring, due to crowding in their existing hive. The first picture shows the complete hive with all it...
  3. BEEHIVES! Buzz Buzz

  7. Woodworking Skill Share
    I need to drill a 1/4 hole through the middle of a roughly foot long wooden dowel for a fishing rod handle. I could use shorter pre-drilled pieces laminated together but that would destroy the grain. I could use a footlong 2×2 then turn it on a lathe, but I still need some advice on drilling...
