    Hi,
    How long is your hive and how many top bars are in it?
    Please reply to my email above.
    Thanks,
    Marshall

    How do you make your top bars? Is that a piece of trim glued to the underside? I’m going to build several hives this winter and definitely want the triangular shape instead of a small rib for the bees to start building on. Thanks.

    Hi Steve..Instead of spending countless hours making top bar hives ive enlisted a friend with a CNC machine to start cutting hives for me and standardizing them..the top bars i make are all one piece..no glue, no popsicle sticks and no tacked triangles..i run the top bars through a 2 blade routering machine that cuts them in two passes instead of 5 passes it would take on a table saw..Being one piece i dont worry much about them coming apart or the pieces seperating..Thanks
