    Hi,

    Its Macrocarpa wood, which is a species of cypress. Great wood to work with and doesn't rot like pine boxes. It might only be available in New Zealand.

    We use it for everything we make, we oil the boxes with Linseend oil on the outside. The bees do what they like on the inside.

    Cheers...Gary
