    Thank you. I have been meaning to get into bees for years, and found a couple of women locally that put on monthly workshops I have attended. One does the top bar and I decided that was the way to go. I am pleased that you have provided these drawings. Two things: could the sides be one by 12 instead of 2 by 12? and as you have simplified my life considerably already…you wouldn’t happen to have a material list handy, would you?
