Step 3: Attach the Legs
To add some legs to our Warre Hive Floor, we will need to cut the following wood pieces:
- 4 legs measuring 10cm tall by at least 4cm wide (3 15/16″ tall by at least 1 9/16″ wide) 2×4′s cut to 3 15/16″ tall make good legs.
- 4 feet measuring 10cm by 10cm square by at maximum 2cm thick (3 15/16″ by 3 15/16″ square by at maximum 13/16″ thick)
Take one of the legs and lay one of the feet on it. Center the foot over the post and fasten it in place.
Finish the other three legs in the same manner, attaching the feet of the legs to the posts.
Now we can take our four legs and arrange them under the floor. Once you have aligned them to your liking, fasten them in place from the top, fastening through the floor into the legs .
Here is a view of the underside so you can see how I aligned the feet on my floor.
Congratulations! You have completed the Warre Hive Floor. In the next section, we will build the Warre Hive Box.
