|A beehive in multiple boxes|
While most people were slogging to the mall at the crack of dawn or earlier, my Black Friday was spent staining the hive bodies. At first I tried making a pattern of large diamonds but I discovered that stain isn't the best medium for that so I ended up making a huge mess on the edge of the first hive body and covering the diamond pattern. You can still see it if you look. I think it looks pretty cool so I'm leaving it. The second hive body went much better. Only five medium supers left to stain!
