New hive stand

I got the plans for making a folding bee-hive off the Bee-keepers of Ireland face book page. Myself and Chris started building it on Saturday and got the top part finished, we didn't have the bolts needed to make and fix the fold-able legs.

It was only after talking about it we thought that I will never need to move the hive stand anywhere that requires it to be folded so why not make it stronger using 4 solid legs. So we found an old square gate post and decided it cut it up for legs. It is fully treated and should last for many years to come.

We put new hive stand in place on Sunday night with the hive that blew over a couple weeks ago.
