    I have seen a Top Bar Bee Hive in action. I thought the system was fantastic.The bees were prolific with a bountiful supply of honey. Much simpler than the standard bee hive system with less lifting involved.

    Have been looking for some simple straight-forward ideas on building a hive and this booklet covers it all nicely. He gives all his measurements in imperial and metric, so anyone can follow the plan. I'm not the world's greatest carpenter, but this plan doesn't challenge even the likes of me. I like all his little simple alternatives like using moulding, for the top bars, if using a router is too daunting. I'm off to see what I have in the shed,and what I need to buy in, and then it'll be all go for a few days. I'll report back when I've completed the project.
