Now, I figure that bees have been building hives for 140 million years utilizing whatever old hollow trees they could find. So, instead of freaking out about needing a $$$$$$ table $aw $$$$$$$$, I'm going to build some 4-sided boxes without tops or bottoms, throw in some bars across the top of each box, build a roof, and see what the bees do with the result. I'd better use screws instead of nails, so they don't fall apart.
Yeah, I know, I have to be really specific about the distance between the bars if I ever want to steal—er—harvest honey. I can do that. Of course, with the way I build, those boxes are liable to look a bit lop-sided. But, hey, they're going on my back deck, and I can't imagine the bees will give a hoot anyway.

Blessed are those who do the best they can with what they have, for they shall never be uptight.
