Wow, look at this.

Open Source Beehives makes a HTBH with a CNC router, seemingly without nails, screws or glue.
These crazy young people even made a laser-cut 'intelligent' Warré hive. How dare they! Rolling Eyes

Great stuff! My preference is still for the home-made, rustic style, but I also like what these people are doing.

At least its a natural comb hive which is good. Im remaining faithful to reuseable timber materials. This degrading world needs less mashines and more simple tools. Lets not forget to remain and support sustainability. Machines are hatdly that unless the whole local bee club buts one such machine for all to use.

There is somewhere very close to me has one of these machines Smile http://makespace.org/ and I know someone who is already a member. there are other community hubs like Makespace in Cambridge where it is possible to get access to these toys.

Now to try and work out where to download the file.......

I'm new to the board and am moving around the forum to get acquainted. Saw this post and watched the video. Very cool indeed. Now to the reason I am posting here. At least here in the united States we have an company called the TechShop. Not in every state and only 1 in any state if there is one. They have anything and everything from woodworking tools, metal working tools, sewing machines, shops etc. You can join for a year or by the month for a fee. After joining you have the use of everything in the shop. The only thing you need to do is to take a class on the machine you want to use. Small fee for each class. They have a CNC router. As I'm new I can't post a web address but just do a web search if you are interested.
I did the tour and the 2 most amazing machines were the water jet, and yes it will cut wood, and the 3D printer.

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
