Inspiration for steampunking the bees
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.
