The Cathedral Hive - Assemble Your Own


We have received great feedback on the Cathedral Hives in the field and from all the people who have
been enjoying their Cathedral Hives they build from our plans.


We know that building the Cathedral Hive from just the plans is not for everyone and can
be challenging for those without advanced woodworking skills.

We have been working hard to make the Cathedral Hive Un-assembled as low a cost as possible,
while insuring that the difficult aspects of the construction are pre-assembled and furnished
in the arts kit. Some woodworking tools and jigs are needed
to put together The Cathedral Hive Un-assembled
