Re: Starting a Beekeeping Woodenware Business
I was looking at the exact same thing last year! Hive bodies and supers with finger joints and hand holds cut with Wimpies jig (also find it here on bee source).
The local market here had a need for built boxes during swarm season. I would recommend getting a load of frames from one of the places mentioned above so you have parts ready to go. I found that by the time it was said and done I was working for about $8 an hour and I hate doing repetitive cuts.
Both of the local brick and mortar stores have gone to fully assembled and primed. It is the only way to compete against the big shippers.
