Bee Hive Construction: Reviewed in BEE CULTURE Oct.2003 - “If you own a table saw with a couple of blades, Peter Sieling will show you how to make your beekeeping equipment. This modest book has the perfect detail needed to easily construct equipment with exquisitely detailed drawings. If you saw his articles in Bee Culture, you know what I mean. Lots of woodworking hints and tips, and even some beekeeping advice.”

Praise for Beehive Construction from others:
“If you are a novice woodworker, we would encourage you to get the... articles by Peter Sieling on building bee hive equipment. The articles are a step by step process of how to use the saw and make the various cuts required.... If you are serious about building good bee equipment, these two issues are way beyond what we can offer. Peter is also the author of Bee Hive Construction published by Garreson Publishing.”
