Making the Eight Frame Hive
By Peter Sieling
This was the standard hive at the beginning of the 20th century, especially for comb honey production. The 8 frame hive never quite died out and while difficult to find today, it’s still preferred by many beekeepers because the smaller size is lighter and easier to handle. Plans include all parts of the hive- the bottom board, supers, Hoffman style frames and inner cover. The standard telescoping cover is included, plus the historic “Excelsior” cover. A simple finger jointing jig, as well as other jigs to facilitate making multiple parts are included. 24 pages, 8 ½ x 11”.
