Beehive Kit. Top Bar Hive.
This is the top bar beehive kit from Beethinking.com. I bought the kit at their shop in Portland a few weeks ago.
Nicely made. Much easier to put together than I thought. Halfway there.
Not in it's final spot. I might apply a finish to the legs, to protect from rot. Otherwise it's all together and ready to go. Front has a plastic window. Open the shutter to view the bees and honeycomb.
Open top. The to bars just sit in the frame, no assembly needed.
