  1. Aloha, I just Built my first Mini Mating Nuk of Pine, My frames do not come down the sides more of a top bar idea but I was hoping I might be able to get your email address to email you a photograph and see what you think about my hive..

    • Hi Wayne – I just sent you my email, to your email address. I’d love the see the photo. I think the top bar approach would work well, it would just take some time for the first drawn comb to arrive. I don’t do top bars (it’s on my “I’ll do that when I get a free moment” schedule), but I think they’re a brilliant idea.
