So far I have used either swarm cells, or emergency cells from a strong hive.

I'd like to try grafting sometime just to see how it works out, but this "cut cell" method looks easier for a beginner like me:

Jay Smith's version of this method is documented on Michael Bush's website, here http://bushfarms.com/beesbetterqueens.htm

I would only make a few, 5 - 10 to start with, so I could just put each cell in a nuc.
