Need to build a bunch of bee hives (including frames), so I am looking for some 10" and 7" wide (finished width), 4/4 and some 6/4 rough cut boards. Longest piece is 20", so short stuff is fine.
Lumber doesn't need to be fully dried, 15% MC or so is fine; it is going outdoors. Need to have some clear lumber for making internal frames. Looking for around 100-ish board feet.

Got interested in bee keeping and just started "Bee School", so the first order of business is building hives! And the hives need to be ready by end of March....

Also looking for bee supplies...

Thx
Bernhard

Bernhard,
I am a fellow beekeeper. Be sure to check the prices for woodenware from some of the mail order companies. I couldn't afford to buy wood and build for the prices of pre-cut components (but I didn't know about this site at the time, so you can surely do better than me
:) ).

The bees are fascinating to watch and observe as they come and go everyday gathering pollen for the hive. Are you building Langstroth type hives?

I tried bee keeping several years ago, built one top bar hive, and put fresh bees in it each year for 3 years. They seemed to do well but suddenly disappeared by August/September and then the wax moths took over and finished decimating what was left of the hive and wax.

Bailey's bee supply in Hillsborough is a good place to start.

My best friend just lost all of his hives in Durham. He may not do beekeeping again for a while.

Did he say why or how he lost his hives? Beekeeping is fun when it's going well but it's not a laid back undertaking and requires regular vigilance and maintenance of the hive.
