Nice project, Steve. I enjoyed your blog showing the construction details. Arty did well with your help!

Nice looking hives. My father in law was a bee keeper all his life.

Great looking bee hives! We need more of these, the bees are disappearing!

ver very nice, I really like them, I have a friend here who would like to begin as they have an orchard with fruit trees, I told him I would make the boxes if he decided to do it, I am now inspired! thanks for sharing!

Nice. I have a friend that is a beekeeper. He has talked to me about helping him with a solar wax melter. Wonder if he thought about making his own hives.

I don’t know anything about beehives but these sure do like they are designed and fabricated with a lot of skill and know how.

Thank you! No I guess I am retired from making beehives. The Coe’s have moved, they took the bees with them, but no plans to expand for now. Thanks for the post!

Did you make that on a CNC machine? If so, do you still have the plans to do so? I have access to CNC machine and would like to experiment with making hive bodies with it.

I made some of the parts with my Legacy CNC. I don’t think this site will accept these sorts of files.
So, this is a link to my Dropbox folder that I used to share the files with Legacy CNC in the past. There is general bee hive information and the CNC files I created for my machine included. I used Vectric V-Carve Pro to make these files. See if this works.
