I can't put any negative comment here, it was a really good grade, looks good once assembled and easy to put together.
We purchased 4 of these in total and all were good, so would 100% recommend them to anyone needing brood boxes.
Would buy again
A few splits in the wood here and there, one whole brood board also spilt in half. However glued and still fitted nicely in place, happy for the price we paid over all and will buy again.
Very easy to put together. No difficult knots to deal with, and looks great! Would definitely buy again
I was very pleased with these boxes. They have knots but that is what you expect. I have boxes with knots that are 20 years old. Light weight and with good fit and finish. Highly recommended. I would buy these again. J
Our high quality British made boxes are all cut to the same pattern with the wood and general fitness for purpose graded after production.
At Bee-Equipment we only use Western Red Cedar or English Cedar, which is stated when you choose the wood grade of your product.
First Grade and Select Cedar products are always made from Western Red Cedar, this wood is grown in north America and is the highest quality range of cedar wood. All of our cedar is sustainable and certified. 1st grade are our very best products, with little to no knots or imperfections. These will last and last, and they look fantastic.
Second Grade Cedar products are made using English Cedar. English Cedar is often lighter in colour compared to Western Red Cedar, however still provides a quality item that is made to last. 2nd grade boxes are our standard. Sturdy construction with some cosmetic imperfections.
We choose to use either Western Red Cedar or English Cedar for our products, as the only other option we have would be a less sustainable Cedar from Asia. This has a less reliable certification process in terms of sustainable harvesting.
Parts of the hive are often made of many pieces glued together. Although this does have some advantages in terms of warping it is less aesthetically pleasing.
This box is sold flat and comes in 2 grades - 1st, & 2nd grade
- 1st has no knots (pictured here flat and assembled)
- 2nd has some knots but not on any joins - This can be flat packed or assembled at extra cost please call for this option. Wood may have solid knots. no rails and nails.
