I have stared to draw up the plans for some of the bee equipment built here on the ranch using Google SketchUp. Initially we just ordered everything online but shipping costs are quite high and some of the more basic equipment was easy enough to make on my own with a table saw and some crown staples/wood glue. As I test out new designs I will be including them in our collection. These are all free to download and try out on your own. These plans work well for us and our environment, but might not work elsewhere.
More free information can be found on our new “Honey Bees” tab also.
