Total novice beekeeper. Loads of videos on construction are available, in the end you might well come up with your own system as I did. The first brood box I constructed wasn't very well manufactured & so a bit of a challenge (lots of swearing) everything else was fine.
I do think drilling & screwing is easier than nails. Also, don't forget you need frames too.
Everything you need, good solid hive 👌. Will Def be buying more.
An excellent entry level hive, easy to assemble and excellent quality.
Wouldn’t hesitate to purchase another when needed.
Easy to assemble, well made.
Yet another lovely product. These hives are lovely, especially after a lick of linseed oil. A really nice addition to my apiary. I'm hoping to expand over then next year so will be back for another half a dozen of these plus supers. I would recommend drilling pilot holes for the bigger nails as they can split slightly, i'll be doing this on my next ones. This would be expected from any flat pack wood product i guess and i'm not very practical when it comes to wood work. Really easy to put together and there is instructions on Gruffs YouTube channel. Great product and exceptional service as always. 😁👍
