Used to transport bees and have all the working tools ready to go. It’s Heavy so not for the small bee keepers.

While most of those looking at this don’t know what a NUC box is – you’ve idea of carrying your hive tools and a place to put frames in is a good idea.

Nice box. I built a bee toolbox last summer but opted not for the nuc design. I usually have a nuc box or two available if needed. I used cedar to keep the weight down. How many hives do you keep? Did you build your own hives?

I think the octagonal hive is really cool! How practical is it to work the bees in this?
Is this for medium frames or deeps?

Do you have any type of plans for this?

Thanks the Octagonal Hive is just as easy to work as a regular hive.

The Tool Carrier is for DEEP SUPER 9” boards.

No Plans, I just built it the size of a NUC box, went a tad wider on the lid to hold the frame bar and added a little more length on one side floor for the Smoker. Then added the tool and brush parts to hold what I had in my Hive tool bucket. I can tell you its HEAVY to carry loaded out Even more when you put honey boards in it. I actually gave it away to my buddy because he has a lot of Hives and I only have two.

Matt Sorry I don’t get on here to often, I only have two hives, I had three. I build all my own stuff. I build cool octagonal observation hives and I like to use Ash or Oak too. They last a long time, NO PAINT. Oak and Ash have natural anti microbial’s too.
