Warre Hive - Assembled

10   |  


Milled in Portland, Oregon and offered in FSC® certified, sustainable kiln-dried, clear, vertical grain Western Red Cedar (the highest grade of cedar available), or Sugar Pine, our Warre hives include our Comb Cut roof, quilt box, two boxes, and a stand all assembled by us. All you need to do is attach the milled feet with the provided screws. If you’re looking to save some money and assemble the hive yourself, check out our easy to assemble Warre hive .

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 Sugar Pine.

    Love it, love it, love

    Love it, love it, love it! The hive was very easy to put together, and it looks so nice with the tung oil finish. This is my very first attempt at bee keeping and it is very much fun and a great learning experience. Will look forward to doing business with you again! Curtis L. Thompson

    I like the hive, but

    I like the hive, but the top piece arrived cracked. We replaced it with our own wood.

    I love the hive and

    I love the hive and the new swarm took right to it. It is a beautiful hive and was so simple to set up. For my first colony I wanted something simple and easy. Beethinking's Warre hive has worked perfectly.

    Good quality, but expensive!

    Good quality, but expensive!

    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.
