Custom Products
I almost don't like the term 'Custom' - it makes the rest of our products sound too 'off-the-shelf'. But the truth is, most of the items we make are for conventional 10-frame Langstroth hives, with 9 5/8" high deep boxes and 6 5/8" (Dadant) honey supers. So, that's what we usually produce and we try to keep a bit of inventory of those items.

However, if you like things a bit different, we're happy to build you some Bee Furniture too! Below are a few examples of some custom products we can make for you - the possibilities are limited only by your imagination!
  • 8-frame equipment (supers, brood boxes, bottom boards, inner and outer covers etc.)
  • Warré Hives and related components
  • Shallow (5 11/16") honey supers
  • Inner Cover with a 'custom' hole, to better suit whatever type of hive-top feeder you may have.
  • Hive Top Feeders

We prefer rabbet joints, as shown on this Snelgrove Board

Depending on the item, our lead time on custom products usually ranges from a day or two, up to a couple of weeks. If you're in a rush, let us know and we'll do our best to help!

We also offer a variety of different finishes, including various stains, pigments, and oils. We tend to prefer bee-friendly and eco-friendly finishes, such as Tung Oil. Depending on what you have in mind, we charge a small surcharge for applying stains and / or oils.

So don't feel shy if you have something a bit different than everyone else, or if you don't know exactly what it is you need. Feel free to contact us and we'll work with you to design and build whatever furniture suits your bees, your yard, and the rest of your equipment!
