Multi-function hive stand that can hold two boxes. The stool is square with the same dimensions in any direction so the boxes can be placed in any position. You can also sit on it or use it as a side table.
This idea was suggested by Tim Heard. He mentioned he sometimes collects old second hand wooden stools or chairs for customers to place their hives on.
The stand would be placed on a verandah or patio with weather protection, not out in the garden. Of course you don’t have to make something like this, you could find something similar second hand, but I have to make things!
Photos below: The stand can hold one box on top, one underneath or both and facing in any direction. The main frame is Hoop Pine painted white with Australian hardwood Beech for the shelves finished with Tung Oil for easy maintenance.
