I have built my first ever bee hive box. This standard box (also known as a “deep” box or deep hive body) is what you normally see stacked in a standard Langstroth bee hive.

Assembling the pre-cut and pre-drilled pieces is fairly simple. The box joints push together and nails and glue hold everything tight. Metal frame rests are also added to protect the wood from repeated scraping with the hive tool. I have included a how-to video showing how to assemble the box.
