The start of my beekeeping

First top-bar hive
Read, Read, Read, Read

My beekeeping experience started in the spring of 2009; when I stumbled upon Phil Chandler’s website biobees.com.  Then I discovered backyardhive.com and ordered their dvd on top bar beekeeping.  After watching the dvd and reading more material I decided that building a top bar beehive would be within my carpentry ability.  Following the plans from Phil Chandler’s website I started my first top bar beehive.
