Damn! A lot more than I ever thought I'd have
As, what was my hobby continues to expand, I'm buying large quantities of frames and now have close to two thousand stacked up in the garage/workshop. Depending where you buy them from, they come in different storage configurations. Has anyone got any neat storage solutions I can copy please?

This is what we use. Made it a number of years ago. It’s on wheels so can move around the unit and now have a second one.View attachment 24016
Now that is a thing of beauty. I showed it to Stan and he said, "Yours are OK in a box!" Funny how they are mine but the honey is ours

Tim wow! can you give me some figures of how many frames it holds please?
we use DN5 for brood frames and I think there is about 30 per row and SN1 for supers with approx 40 per row. You can make it as large or as small as you like.

Having seen something similar, I got husband to fix some metal shelf brackets to the side of my shed in a corner and keep frames on that. Works well for me
