Inspiration for steampunking the bees

Because I wanted to share this photo with some people and couldn't be bothered to find my flicker account password.

It's from the book Beekeeping For All by Abbe Warre.  It's a really interesting bee smoker that I hope to use for inspiration for making my own affordable smoker.

Yes, we hope to get bees, but first we have to build the hives and equipment.


Here are some photos of potential bit of metal to make this smoker.  The 1.5" brass tube costs about $5 but the rest were salvaged from yardsales.  Total cost so far, about $8.50.
