He wasn&#39;t just trying to pawn off some lumber he didn&#39;t need anymore, we wanted it to make some <a href="http://www.nhm.org/nature/blog/bee-hotel-california">bee hotels</a>.&nbsp; Jerome Brown, one of our amazing exhibit technicians, fabricated two hotels and Phil Bouchard personally drilled the over 200 quarter inch holes (about an inch deep).
