as of right now i don't builb my own hives, south west hive parts is just up the road and for the price its hard for me to justify building them. In the future I would like to build a dedicated shop for my hive parts.
good to here from another Ohio woodworker. Miami needs to find them another big ben QB. I am over in preble county every now and then, at Don Popps honey farm and went to this years pork festival. Pork festival was kinda of disappointing seeing all of the country crafts made in China.
