Warre Hive

82   |  


Milled in Portland, Oregon and offered in FSC® certified, sustainable kiln-dried Western Red Cedar or Sugar Pine, our Warre hives include two boxes to get you started. Our Warre hive kits feature 7/8" thick Western Red Cedar or Sugar Pine, rabbet joints, pre-drilled holes and stainless steel screws for added strength and longevity. Sloped handles allow for improved rain run off and better grip when lifting. The precision milled, one piece top bars are unattached for compliance with most state and local beekeeping laws. Ships free to the contiguous 48 states—international shipping available.

Warre boxes measure 13 3/4" wide by 13 3/4" long by 8 1/4" deep. Boxes are made from 7/8-inch thick Western Red Cedar or Sugar Pine.

    Good craftsmanship

    Only problem is the instructions, they could use a little refining.

    everything arrived well padded and damage free. Everything went together without difficulty.

    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.
