Having seen lots of plans online and the scottish beekeepers site I am still looking for plans for a national hive and associated parts, does any one know of a link please?
The scottish one is ok and will do at a push.
I want to bash some wood:smash:

Keep up Hyde Ranger, you are supposed to read the threads properly.

GingerNut disguised his offering http://tinyurl.com/yd8tvd4 of a link to Dave's famous site. :)

It's surprising just how many answers Dave's site provides.

When I started keeping Bees dave's site helped me out many a time.

Do we have anyone with CAD skills that could do a set of plans for members for nucs and hives ?

You can buy good plans for National and WBC hives from the BBKA, (sorry all you sensitive souls), for £2.50 a time

Just downloan - for free - from the scottish website.The plans shown are simply taken from the ministry of ag and fish pamphlets.The dimensions are in imperial ,imperial tape measures are still available or simply multiply all measurements by 25.4 to convert to "modern" metric system.I've built dozens of hives to these plans and everything fits together as it should.

Beehive plans

I found the plans a bit confusing so I made a few diagrams that I hang inside my shed that I can look at whilst cutting timber (quick reference) I will try and post them
