Frames were well made, fit together properly, have plenty of hardware included to hold them together (nails), and are straight and square.
I haven't used them yet, but I have their top bar hive with similar bars. These are made of pine.
If you are going foundationless then frames of this style are the way to go. No need to nail/glue in comb guide as it is built in. Would have been 5 stars but the wood is a little roughed up in spots. Either a dull blade when they were milled or some other issue.
I purchased Frames and Wooden ware together. I haven't had time to assemble them yet. Upon inspection all components seem to be of good quality and well fitted. These are my winter projects to prep for spring expansion. I would recommend these products and purchase again.
Great! Very good and easy to put together.
Sugar Pine is our value wood option. Beautiful, strong, takes paint or sealant well, and is more stable and lighter than more common ponderosa pine.
Western Red Cedar is our premium wood option. It is rot resistant, dimensionally stable, insulates well, and doesn't require painting or sealing.
All of our wood is sustainably harvested and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified.
