Accoya Wood

Box Building

*article under construction. This is more of a place holder at the moment until I can add more info and photos.

Alex of Spicers Hollow Native Bees dropped in some Accoya offcuts. I plan to make a box with it and do some of the usual basic tests over time. The box might kick around the shed for quite a few years by the sound of it.

Accoya is a “modified wood” that has a 50 year warranty! Unfortunately is very expensive so that will play a factor with native bee boxes, but could it last twice as long as a standard pine box?
