Initially a novice at beekeeping, author Tony Pisano urges readers to build their own beekeeping equipment to add to the pleasure of this hobby. Those who enjoy working with their hands and solving problems will find special enjoyment as they construct different hives and related equipment. By following the author’s instructions, based on his personal experiences, the reader will have greater understanding of how the different units work. A table saw is the main power tool used in the operations described in this book. Lists of equipment as well as construction details are provided for each project. Pisano begins with instructions starting with the bottom board and continues through all of the details.  With this book, Pisano has created an excellent model for how-to projects with precise drawings and lists of equipment. —Marilyn K.
