How to Build a Fish Tank Observation Hive Part 3 – The Bush Bee Man


– All these screws and they’re
not screwed to anything. What’s that about? That’s a bit weird. So I wonder if we could
just push it back together. Just wonder if that must have got a wet, that must’ve been when
the fish tank was leaking. If she’s got a bit, she’s got a little bit skull wifty. Just smack a nail in
there, we should be right. Should we take that off first? How does that hold together? (sighs) I think we might just take this
little bit of wood off here, and then we just use the base there, I don’t know what’s the
worst thing that can happen? (laughs) I guess it’ll give
the moths somewhere to hide. Anyway, we might just pop this end off, then we’ll send it together and see what sort of
excitement we can develop. (bees buzzing) (wood cracking) a bit of lengthy long jolly screws, nails, or whatever they’re called, staples. (laughs) (hammer tapping) How to make a rough home for your bees. The wildest bee man ever. Mister instructable. (groans) Anyway, we’ll stick a nail in here. To pull them out, do you reckon? Get some nails, get some
nails, that’s what I was doing. I was too enthusiastic about those nails. Where’s those little
nails we had a minute ago? Hmm, the hell did the little hammer go? This is ridiculous. It almost like vanishes
before my very eyes. Come on. We were just using it weren’t we? That little. (groans angrily) Stupid, stupid, stupid. Goodness gracious, oh well, we’ll use this little hammer instead. Give it a bit of clean up. (sighs) Oh dear, oh dear. (hammer tapping) That nail hasn’t even got a head on it, I mean it’s only meant to be
a little bullet head nail, but supposed to have a
little lump on the end. Yeah, freckin’ hell. We won’t completely throw it
away ’cause we might need it. (hammer tapping) Oh, god dammit. I reckon that looks pretty good, I don’t think we need too many in there. Oh! We will just stick an nail in
here, you reckon somewhere? As well, just to hold that in there. (hammer tapping) Right, now, my plan originally. Ah anyway, it’ll be all right, that’ll save us some time, won’t it? Where is that did of, a had a little bit of stuff ready somewhere. Herby, derby, der. – [Man] Did you just put something back? – Ah, wouldn’t that amaze ya. Wouldn’t that, yeah, no wonder there’s
never sinks around here. But don’t get too excited. (laughs) Anyway, the mad idea that I had is if we have a little bead, obviously like you make your bee box, you have a little bead around there and a little bead there and there and then I have an opening at the front. I reckon that’ll work. What I’m gonna do is cut them I suppose hell it’s gonna just gonna
be enough though isn’t it? But I suppose there only
just has to be enough, doesn’t it really? Right, so we’ll get a,
you know, marking stick, where the hell we left that. (mumbles) Found a bit more glass on me floor, no. Now this is surprise you wouldn’t it? Me taking crap to the bin. You guys find the pencil while
I just put this in the bin. Did we find it? Ah, it’s like playing
where’s wally, isn’t it? Or is that me the Wally? (laughs) God, what have I done with that? Come on, shit! we only had a minute ago it’s not in my ears. It’s ridiculous! It’s gotta be with that hammer, isn’t it? We’ve lost both the hammer,
and this bloody pencil. Oh, golly, we’re getting
close, we’ve got the hammer. Oh, I’ve got the square,
I’ve got the pliers. Ah, I’ve got everything,
and we’ve got baking paper and I don’t know what that’s
doing out here, but still. Oh come on, that is just silly. No, what’d you do with it John. Has to be here somewhere. It’s gotta be in this shed
somewhere, doesn’t it? Damn it to hell. Ah screw it, we’ll just scratch the wood. It’ll be fine, it’s not that
a blummin’ important anyway. Here’s what the woodworkers had to use before they had pencils anyway. Now look at me, I’m
gettin’ old, gettin’ old blummin’ in the history. That’s a way you can
hold it straight, innit? Look at that, that’s a perfect pencil. (laughs) oh, we’ll have to use this
bench since it’s plugged in. Are we good? (saw blade whirring) My father-in-law always says,
“measure twice, cut once.” Not cut twice, so, we gotta
measure that, shall we? See Pete, I do listen. It’s gonna suck if we got it wrong, ’cause this is the only
bit of stick we got. Ah perfect, look at that. Awesome, we’ll do one other side. Are you kid, I’m using my
fingers for all of this. Is that a little bit rough? (saw blade whirring) Right yeah, like that. And we’ll put that like that. Anyway, if this doesn’t work, we’re gonna buy some
wider strip like that. ‘Cause I think that’s the same width. For this, for now, this is what we’ve got, and this is where we are. This is how it is, this
is what it should’ve been, what it was, what it could be. Have they got another saying? Wanna straighten it up first. That’s a bit rough, look at that. (saw blade whirring) Oh, gee that’s right, I
thought completely with that. (laughs) Oopsie, I think I’ve
got a bit too much gap. You bloody think we’d measured it. Wouldn’t they? Right yo, I reckon I’m
not that blummin’ smart, so we’re gonna sit this on there and we’re gonna take our tray. Do you reckon we should
glue the, clean the, ahh anyway, we’ll do this first, then i’ll clean the glass
(mumbles off camera) we’ll just pop these in here, and then we’ll bring our tank over here. I don’t know the only
drama we’re gonna have is I don’t think we’re gonna have, quite have a landing board so, this might not pan out. I think that’s gonna be all right. We’ll just see what sort
of gap we’ve got here for the girls to land on. fingers crossed I can carry
it over here that smashing it. Oh god, that’d be really sad, wouldn’t it, if we got to this point
and it went, whish. Bloody thing for with the bees. Shit, come on, be nice, be nice. Oh, shit. It’s not real stable now. (exhales) Well we made it. I reckon we can just
about nail it to the edge and we’d be about the right fit. So, in theory they should
be able to run in that hole. That should be kind of cool, I reckon. Well we’re gonna find out shortly I wonder how the hell are we gonna get on carrying it upstairs because she’s like really not real stable
now as you would expect. Just the muscles might help me, we’ll carry it on the
actual, on the actual thing. Okay. Otherwise this could be
rather embarrassing, I reckon. This is scary carrying this around. it’s not good, because of course, the only thing stabilizing it is the base as a general rule. so without a base of course
it’s a bit okey doke. (whistles) (upbeat music) Oh me well, yeah yeah, oh I reckon for that’s pretty good for them innit? so I reckon come back, and we’ll
start cleanin’ up that mess and see if we can’t get the girls put in. I tell you what, these
projects always seem to take a lot longer than you
anticipate, don’t they? Well anyway, at least I
haven’t smashed the thing yet. So that’s a good thing. So keep your fingers crossed that the bees actually have a house to live in that we can see through. So, keep on keepin on, and
don’t forget, what is it? The three S’s sponsor, susport, no hang
on, i’ll try that again. What’s that? There’s three S’s I think
they go sponsors, support, and subscribe I’m pretty sure. No, he’s shaking his
head, it’s not subscribe [Man] it’s like, share, subscribe. – Like, share, subscribe. Well that’s L-L-S. Okay. I’ll have to come up with a new saying. I had it all worked out, I
thought it was three S’s. But it’s L and S-S. L-L-S No, like, share, subscribe there you go. I am not very informed when
it comes to the internet to be absolutely honest with you. (laughs) Anyway thank
you all for coming along for this insanity of making
a hive in a fish tank. let’s hope we get to the finish line. (bees buzzing)
