Cedar Hive

Just got this one but already have two. like the Cedar so I don't have to paint. Holding up well enough to buy my third one.

A beautiful hive!

My 8 frame complete hive is all glued and screwed together already. It fit together very well and was easy to assemble. I love the peaked top and am glad that there is a board at the bottom of it to limit the bee space. My only concern is that my other 8 frame boxes might not fit. I have read that your 8 frame boxes are a bit bigger (only by 1/2"). I have not tried them however. (I didn't know the 8 frame box doesn't have a standard.) Other than that, I'm extremely pleased with this hive. I would highly recommend it!

High quality materials

Excellent wood quality and precision cuts make assembly a breeze. Took tung oil beautifully and ready for next season. Originally bought as a gift for a new bee keeping friend...nope...ordering another for them.

Love your product. Only reason I didn't leave 5 stars is because I didn't receive the correct nail size for the frames but that was an easy fix. Other than that everything was great and excellent costumer service! Would definitely buy from again.
