Langstroth Standard Deep Super. I have been raising Bees for close to 30 years. Lately I started to make my own boxes and hives for even tighter quality control. I started to make the boxes shown here. I felt that going to a half Blind Dovetail joint would be a benefit since it is, among other things, self-squaring (to a point)The other benefits over the traditional finger joint are that it is a Mechanical joint. In other words if there was no glue or nails to hold it together it could only come apart in 1 direction. A typical finger joint can separate in either direction. Also as the wood expands from the ambient humidity The joint will only get tighter. The last benefit the Dovetail Joint has over the finger joint is that there is less end grain exposed. The end grain of the wood is what sucks water up like a straw. The less exposed end grain the better. In my opinion these boxes are far superior to the older style. Eep Honey Super / Brood box. The box is completely assembled and painted. It has 2 coats of White Valspar latex paint on it. All joints are Glued and Nailed with 1 1/2 15 gauge nails. All boxes have metal frame rests installed. This sale includes 1 Deep Box, 10 wooden Frames, and 10 wax coated Plastic Foundations. This is not a complete hive. The photos show the different components of the hive and are for reference only. Included are 10 wooden frames with plastic foundations. The frames are great quality with a 1/2 thick bottom bar. What that means for you is less damaged frames Over time or when you extract. It also means less warp-age as these frames are stronger than the cheaper junk out there. These are the same frames and foundations that I use and sell locally. I use Rite Cell brand foundations. Here are some of the specifications of the foundations. Slips easily into a grooved top frame. Sharper cell edges for quick acceptance. Wax moths cannot damage. Durable plastic holds up to years of extracting. The foundations are made of a rigid plastic coated generously with beeswax. All boxes will now have the newer style handles as shown in the pictures. Photo #8 still shows the older style for reference. These are 100% american made boxes. I build them right here in my garage. Contact me with your zip code and I will get a quote for you.
