Escape Board for Bee Hives

Don't know if there are any beekeepers here but this was a nice little project on a rainy morning. I made two escape boards which allows the beekeeper to clear a hive of all bees so that he/she can then get the frames of honey without having to deal with thousands of angry bees.

I made a mini-hive for my grand daughter. I had no idea what I was doing, got info from the net. She belongs to a Bee club? Whatever you call it. I had hoped it turned out okay, she loves it. Several of her bee keeping friends asked if I would build them full hives the same materials I used on her mini- hive.
They cancelled their order when I gave them a price. The hive was made from Veranda PVC boards which cost a small fortune. I told my grand daughter if she needed larger or more hives that it's cheaper to buy them in kit form or fully assembled.
Nice job on the escape board, did not know what it was til I saw the video.

It must have been kind of heavy. What kind of joints did you use?
