Part 2 - Bottom Bars
This is part 2 of a 3 part series on how to build Langstroth beehive frames. They can be crafted for your beehives from scrap lumber. Here is a video of the construction process showing the few easy steps it takes to make your own bottom bars using only a table saw. If you do not have the tools required, or just don't feel like making them yourself, then please feel free to visit our beekeeping supplies store.
This video specifically covers making the bottom bars for your Langstroth style beehive frames. All the steps in the how-to video will teach you how to build Langstroth style beehive frames with a little bit of your time and the right tools. The steps are fairly simple and straightforward, however, it should be noted that this project is most likely not for new woodworkers.
The tools you will need to build Langstroth beehive frames are a table saw, and optionally a router, though this is not necessary. You can use a dado stack for your saw or not, making multiple passes with your standard table saw blade to create the dado cuts. Everything else is pretty straightforward and you should have no difficulty pulling off this project.
