    Default 100% recycled wood

    I made these two eight frame hives today out of pine boards that I got out of a house that was being remodeled. I only had enough wood for the five boxes and bottom boards. I will admit I was a little lazy building them, These are the first hives that I have built that I did not use rabbet, or box joints.
    So, other then my time, I have two free hives.

    Not sure what you want to see beepro, but here are a few more pics. If you would like to see something else I would be more then happy to take more pics.
    I guess the main thing is the 3/8 by 5/8 rabbet.
