Something only a hipster bee keeper could appreciate…
I made a one off custom Jarrah wood handle for my J-hive tool!
The new handle ergonomics is perfect for my grip and the balance is on point.
The added heft and overall quality feels alot better now too
Still deciding on coatings, options include lemon oil, boiled linseed oil, tung oil or wax dipping
Oh and while we’re on the subject, here’s some info about hive tools I found online for those that like reading and pictures:
That’s some nice handiwork there!
That’s very nice! I like the feel of wood so much better than metal!
Here’s a bee herding tool that is interesting. I have one and it takes a little patience, but they scoot out of the way!
