Making Sawdust in the Workshop

This past week I've been making additional deep brood boxes and more hive top feeders in the workshop, although I'm sure my wife considers it instead to be making more sawdust in the workshop.

I've been working on them a little each night after dinner. The boys follow me into the workshop, and play in the sawdust piles on the floor, re-arrange the tools in the toolbox, climb up onto the workbench to watch and have a great time.

So far I've been able to put together the following deep and feeder.

I'll finish their coats of paint, and get the mesh hardware cloth on the top of the feeder and they'll be ready to go for spring.
