A member of the Gold Coast Regional Beekeepers requested the shed to make a display bee hive based upon a sample which the shed had previously made. The subsequent quote was accepted, and the project was assigned to Wozza, and with his usual efficiency, duly set about the task. Having a sample to go by, he quickly measured and cut out the various pieces, using the appropriate shed machinery. Once all the pieces were complete, assembly and then painting with a clear finish resulted in the finished display hive, as shown here. Once the hive is populated with bees, the two protection panels on the top half of the hive can be removed, revealing the bee activity behind glass panels.
