This Assembled 9-5/8" deep hive body (or "brood box") is premium select grade and made of Radiata pine. These boxes are cut, routed and assembled here in our own wood shop. We ensure each box fits our premium standards- the joints fit perfectly, it sits flat, and has no serious blemishes. There are almost zero knots and only very minor blemishes, if any. Can be purchased with either wooden frames that include heavy waxed black foundation, or heavy waxed Plastic Frames.
The boxes are glued and stapled at each finger. We do not fill the staple holes. We recommend using an exterior latex paint. Comes Assembled.
