Ok I am brand new at this and was gonna oreder some hives and materials. I was wanting to know if I order unassembled hives do I need a jig in order to put them together?
You don't need a jig. The only things I put together with a jig are frames because I like to do them ten at a time. It is certainly not required. The only absolutes are glue and a hammer, as far as I'm concerned.
