David's Slatted Racks

Last year I posted an article on my first attempt at slatted racks.

David Manning, a fellow beekeeper also from Missouri, improved upon the design and was kind enough to send pictures and directions on how to make them.

Thanks David for sending pictures, they turned out great!

Here is a picture of the finished product sitting on top of the landing board.

Here is a view from the front.

Here are two hives with slatted racks in use!

When I make more slatted racks for myself, I'm going to follow this pattern, because I like how the direction of the racks align with the direction of the frames, and are not perpendicular to the direction of the frames as the ones I previously made.
