_Cut two 3-foot pieces, and two 1-foot pieces. Use the 1-foot pieces to mark off from the ends where the crossbars should go. Nail them on the inside of that line. I got this off of a YouTube video. But my apiary's ground is uneven, and I can't have my hives just on this 2x3 stand. I must have them on the yellow cinder blocks. I decided to put the hive stand atop the cinder blocks. I added a 5-inch lag screw on each end of the stand, so I could adjust the stand to level the hives once I got the cinder blocks in place. Worked like a charm.
