And so I've saved the cut away portions of my 'deeps' to make all of my beekeeping boxes a smaller, uniform size. (As the wise Michael Bush says, 'Friends don't let friends lift deeps'.) These short pieces are useful to add to medium sized boxes to accommodate deep frames, should the need arise. This week I found another purpose for one of them -- a new bird feeder.
