    Here is one of the stands I have been using the last couple years. All you need is a couple of 2 x 10 or 12's and four concrete post holders(4x4). Once all together it is very solid and can be moved fairly easily. If you have bottom entrances it gets it up high enough that skunks should not be a problem!

    +1 for stacking cinder blocks and running 4x4s between them.

    Ste the on cinder blocks and they work well and the price is right.
    I use these same landscape timbers, but cut them to just more than the length and width of the hive. Stacking two widths between four lengths like Lincoln logs and screwing them together makes individual stands that level with a shovel and relocate easily. Three timbers makes two stands that look nice and last near forever.
