P8310306The time has come to stop using the dinning table, garden furniture and pretty much any other flat surface I can find to make beekeeping boxes and frames on. I’ve become a little concerned that divorce may be on the horizon if I make a mess of any more furniture

So, I’ve grabbed myself and Black&Decker workmate. Most people are familiar with this benches. Balck&Decker have been selling them for decades. These simple collapsible benches are very handy for beekeeping. I’ve been using mine to make frames and hives. The ability for it to clamp boxes as I make them is really very useful and above all never again will I nail a frame onto the patio furniture by mistake.
