WE SAW OLD LOGS INTO NICE LUMBER FOR BEE HIVES.
According to the website, it’s around 17k to purchase a new one. How many trees do you cut down a year for that investment? Do you have timber products as well? I’m curious, as I have 40hectares of eucalyptus trees, am trying to set up bee keeping (your videos help a lot) and am wondering how feasible timer and bees are. Thanks.
its a woodmizer LT40HD its portable.
This is very interesting. What type of equipment (brand/model) do you use for your saw? Is it portable? Thanks.
come by or you can send the money classes or come as you have time and do what we are doing at the time. its a hands on class.250.00 I sell it as a 1 yr class but have students come as long as 5 yr no extra charge
How do I sign up for classes ?
ha=ha if I adopt you all the others would get mad at me. you can always come and be a student and learn.
Please adopt me, Ill work free and learn
you need to visit my scrap pile its got all kinds of wood I give it away for fire wood.
;ot of poplar,pine,black walnut,butternut and yeah lots of oak
I’m subscribed to him as well. Have you seen his idea of taking scrap wood (1″ x whatever) and essentially laminating back together to make a full board? It is labor intensive, but I suppose if you have a lot of that material available, it could be worth it not to waste it.
Even though my cedar was so cheap, I still feel bad when I toss any of it out!
yes it was him shooting video here I did a clip off it, he was visiting here.
Ha, I recognize the voice of RJones! Don, I think we are long lost kin, or maybe great minds just think alike. I don’t have a sawmill of my own yet, but I have a whole pile of rough cut cedar drying in the garage that was sawed out with beehives in mind. $19 for about 500 BF of cedar. Should make quite a few inexpensive and weather resistant boxes!
I personally don’t pure Russian there too aggressive I mix them with other races.
thank you for your fast response,however if you could kindly give your opinion on Russian queens here in Florida ( will they survive and be able to lay for 3 years.) which is very hot ,although the research center I think is in Baton rouge La.
I mix all breeds here I stop making pure races.
thanks foe watching,always been big
Must have been a while back. You were more of a “stout bee man” then. Love your vids.
you are the man,amazing.By the way I am here in Alachua Fl,member ( a lady I forgot her name ,she moved from carolina to here in Fl,so she stopped over at your place and bought a nuc with Russian queen )of the local bee club.I would like to know more about your Russian queen,I would appreciate your info .Thank you sir.
