Product Details


Our most popular grade. Tight, solid knots, small pitch pockets and small, tight cracks are acceptable for this grade. Imperfections that interfere with the structure and functionality of the box are not accepted. Black knots larger than a quarter dollar are not acceptable. Fingers and rabbet ears must be free of knots. Knots with cracks going all the way through, as long as the knot is solid are acceptable. Small Knots in the hand hold are acceptable, unless in the thin part of hand hold. Black edge knots or planer skips with ½" (1.27 cm) thickness or less can me missing from the top or bottom of the board.

Use 6¼" Frames and 5⅝" Foundation. Nails not included.

What size is right for me?

Did you know the only difference in measurements between 10 frame and 8 frame boxes is the width? 8 frame equipment is narrower than 10 frame, and not always compatible with other 8 frame equipment as dimensions vary slightly by manufacturers. 10 frame equipment offers more space for brood and honey production.

    Poor Quality Control

    Pre-drilled nail holes all misaligned. Short sides were wider than the long ones and required planing in order to fit tightly to the box below.

    Wood splits too easily when nailed. Could be alignment of pre drilled holes.

    Good for the money

    Here is the deal. Come prepared to deal with issues related to pine. Some slight trimming of finger joints will be required. You will need to have 24" clamps and pre-assemble before gluing. I used a jig and needed to clamp corners to insert into the jig. If assembled properly they are square and stack well.

    Not quite as expected

    by Pam on Feb 28, 2024

    A couple of pretty large knots, some splits in the wood, joints have pretty good size gaps. This is true for two of the four I ordered.
