Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for A good way to deal with wintertime moisture is to use wedged-shaped hive top ventilation shims, which is the subject of the most recent addition to this web site’s page “In the Beekeeper’s Workshop“.  The hive top shims are placed on the two sides the topmost hive body and below the inner cover  (see Figure 1 and photo above).  The shims are tapered, with the front end being about 3/4-inch high.

While cutting a wedged-shape shim may seem to be a simple operation, there is actually a bit more to it than meets the eye.  The key is to make a taper jig which will hold the boards at the proper angle as you run them through your table saw.  A taper jig is the only safe way to make this type of cut.  Once you have made the taper jig, cutting the shims is simple.   The plans and accompanying video describe how to make a taper jig and then the hive top ventilation shims.
