    shaper replied to a thread Any wood workers? in Our Town
    I will be building deeps and mediums. 1x12 boards are way too expensive to build bee hives with. I bought the tools for drilling hols on the edges for pegs to get wider boards. I'm sure there is a fancy name for it. I also have some tongue and...

    shaper replied to a thread How much brass is to much in Our Town
