This deep hive box is beautiful and came with all the necessary parts. Easiest box to assemble I have purchased and the wood is beautiful!
Love the design and quality. Was missing a few parts but friendly customer service shipped them to me. I placed a second order today. Nothing better than the optional windows on the deep brood boxes. Good quality.
The wood was in great shape with very few blimishes.
Good. Thank You
I like the idea of having a viewing window and the milling was done fantastically. However, the box has knots in the worst locations. There are knots next to the area of the window opening with large cracks in them. Consequently, the box will not likely last long. There are also knots on the edges. For the cost of the box, there should be little/no knots. I can purchase a select grade box from Mann Lake with no knots for less than half of the price. Again, I love the window and the handles, but the quality of wood is lacking with regards to the price. I would not purchase again.
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.
