Are you interested in becoming a backyard beekeeper? Do you have a small farm, garden or orchard that could benefit from increased pollination? Don't hide an ugly, mass-produced bee hive down in the back somewhere, when you can have a locally-made, high quality and beautifully-finished hive which will become a focal point of your yard or apiary! I offer hand-crafted honey bee hives and related parts, made here on Vancouver Island. All of my 'Bee Furniture' is hand-made to exacting tolerances, fully assembled, finished and ready for you to use - at prices that rival unfinished mass-produced equipment. Quality and appearance are the finest available.
Our Beekeeping Starter Package includes everything you need to start beekeeping except frames and bees! Available fully finished with gel-stain and bee-friendly tung oil for just $210, and now also available from stunningly beautiful Western Red Cedar from $275, fully finished! Contact us for details.
If you're looking for a great gift for an existing beekeeper, check out our all-in-one Beekeepers Equipment / Nuc Box. It holds 2, 3 or 5 frames and features external slots for standard and J hive tools, bee brush, smoker, and a swing-out frame perch. We made the box extra deep to protect any queen cells hanging down from frames. We've also added a removable divider, so you can keep equipment in one part and either two or three frames of bees on the other side. Or, remove the divider and transport up to 5 frames safely. The box has a screened ventilation hole - great for emergency splits or catching swarms. Finished with our signature golden or medium-brown gel stain and 4 coats of tung oil, plus genuine leather carrying straps and a locking clasp to keep things secure. Available now for just $125.
Over-winter your existing hives without worrying about moisture problems with our quilt boxes, just $35.
Many other components and custom products are also available - see our web site for photos and prices. I'm an experienced beekeeper and woodworker, and can help with any questions you may have.
Located here in Nanaimo; free delivery is often available around the island. I'm also happy to meet to show finished products in person. See web site, link below!
