Top Bar Stand

The other day I spent about half an hour throwing together a stand to place my top bars on. The stand makes it easier to inspect and take pictures of the comb. It also prevents any unnecessary movement that may weaken the comb attachment at the top. All the wood that I used was just scrap wood from the construction of my hive.

Instead of spending a lot of time cutting a notch out of the wood, I just glued two little pieces on each side of the posts
The space between the notches was larger than the width of any of my top bars.
