Mary and I like to do creative things.

Her hive ended up with punched copper cables and this is my latest bee house:

4X4 post, body of barn wood with tight joints; now that is totally cool, unique.  Very nice, so creative.  I?m impressed.

Now, just wait until you see some of sawdust, Jim, observation hives that look like a fine piece of living room furniture: walnut, or oak,  polished and perfectly fitted joints on rotating bottom if desired, glass sides. 

Best to the bees!
Bless the Beekeepers.  Dealing with venomous insects takes courage, patience, dedication and a desire to be with nature.

Michael, I am not sure if I am more impressed by the hive, or that you are familiar with the term steampunked.

Love it - creative as all get-out.  Hopefully Sawdust will post some of his creativity as well

The edge . . . there is no honest way to explain it, because the only people who really know where it is, are the ones who have gone over.

Looks good but for Steam Punk it needs a couple of gauges and a misc. gear.

A gauge for internal temp and adjustable top vent with wheel would be fittingly utilitarian.
