Responsibly harvested, FSC® certified premium California limited edition Redwood is naturally resistant to warping, shrinking, and cracking, and additionally kiln dried. This impressive, highly desired lumber is perfect for outdoor applications.
Redwood is rot-resistant, extremely durable, and beautiful when allowed to weather to gray or preserved with a few coats of tung oil. Redwood takes longer to mature than most other woods. Its natural tannins and oils make it even more resistant to pests and rot than Cedar (and its durability exceeds that of Cedar as well). Redwood top bar hives include a premium copper composite roof which can be reversed to white, should you wish.
Once these are gone, they are gone! Don't miss this small run these handsome, heritage quality Redwood hives.
Clear grain Douglas Fir offers exceptional toughness, beauty, and value and its strength is a benefit to the top bar hive’s longer sideboards, and sizable shingles. Since Douglas Fir is among the heaviest and hardest softwoods, its dense composition compliments the light lifting of single bars of honeycomb (5-7lbs), versus the heavy boxes of the Langstroth and Warre hives.
