This home-made hive is constructed fully from Cedar, and the hive body is crafted out of 5/4" kiln-dried Western Red Cedar. It includes three rear entrance options and upper screen ventilation. The observation window covers the whole length of the hive, so you can see what is happening on each bar. The solid bottom board is hinged to reveal a screened bottom board when opened. The top bars are 17 3/4", and two follower boards are included. The hive is 48" long, and stands at just over 3 ft high.
