Thanks, Matt. We had a grand time unboxing and it was crazy easy to assemble. My husband and I couldn't have built anything better. Heck, we couldn't even get that size wood here if we tried.

I purchased a top bar hive several weeks ago before finding you guys and I have to say that your top bars are much much nicer.

Thanks for making these cool hives and for all of your advice. I can see that I'll probably need another one in the not too distant future!

I purchased two of your top-bar hives this January, and they arrived in Iowa promptly and in great shape. I am a skilled woodworker with all the tools and machinery, so I could have made my hives. I decided to buy hives from you instead, since a lot of my time is taken up with other work. I think my choice was a good one. The hive design is sturdy and well thought out. Your construction methods are appropriate and strong. And the fit and finish is A+ quality. I also like that you are using recycled wood. Thanks for offering such a lovely product -- your hives have already made my introduction to beekeeping a pleasure.

Our Bee Thinking top-bar hive that we set up in March 2011 is going gang busters... we "enthroned" the hive with a local swarm and the colony has been super healthy and productive ever since!

I want to thank you for offering such an easy product to put together. It really seems like great quality. Assembly was much easier than I expected.
