Yesterday Mary asked me to make something for the farm. It’s a feeder to put inside the beehives so that when they’re starting out, food is easy to find and plentiful, allowing them to get the hive good and strong. I made six of them.
They’re simple and making them is straightforward, but the neat thing is that I was able to spend an hour in the shop and create $25 worth of value from scrap wood and glue. Usually when I calculate how much I’m “earning” in my shop, it’s far below minimum wage.
Not that I’d want to spend all day making these things, but still.
