    Basic carpentry skills are an asset to beekeeping. If you have the means to make many of your own hive components, you are way ahead of the game. Those like me who don’t have basic carpentry skills are definitely at a disadvantage. But here’s something even I can make: A frame jig.

    And here are some photos that show how the jig is made. It doesn’t provide exact measurements, but I guess it doesn’t need them:
