NOTES: • Pre-drill 1/8″ diameter for all #6 nails and pre-drill 5/64″ diameter for all #3 nails. • Glue all wood joints for best construction. ‘Titebond III‘ or ‘Elmers Carpenter’s Wood Glue Max‘ are good glues to use for this purpose. • Into groove of warmed top bars, pour melted beeswax for guiding bees where to start combs. • See Warré’s book “Beekeeping for All” for instructions on the cover cloth and burlap bottomed quilt.
This kit does NOT include: wood glue, rye flour for cover cloth treatment, or paint for hive exterior.
