For a while now I’ve wanted to integrate bees into the yard … or near the yard at least, and at some point I learned about mason bee hives. Today I started on one
using this log. I cut it into three sections using a circular saw. Two of those broke from rot.
I drilled several holes with the brace but decided to abandon this design. The holes will be 4/ 6/ and 8/16. On the next design I will use an upright piece of log, the advantages of which I’ll talk about when I do it.
