Beehive Xwords

Beehive crosswords are a format pioneered by Will Shortz. Each numbered hex, when solved, will contain a six letter word wrapping around the number (one letter per triangular cell); the word starts in the cell with the tic mark. The word can wrap either clockwise or counterclockwise from its starting cell. The numbered clues below each layout correspond to the numbered hexes. There are a pair of puzzles here now, I hope to add more later.
