Instead I will learn hot to join hive planks with wooden dowels and wood glue. I have lined up to make a few top bar hives for my Apiary this winter and I see no reason for not joining them with wooden dowels.
Stay tuned ;)
This set costs under 3 Euro in Sweden. Note the 4 dowel centers to mark the exact position of the previously drilled holes onto the other one, NICE ;) I think I have a hand drill too, happy days!
