Marinka - Trailing Fuchsia - Fuchsia hybrid. The Warre Hive @ The Wagner Woodworks. Upon experiencing some of the more exotic honeys, in contrast to the bland “clover” honey which proliferates American supermarkets, I was quickly afflicted with the honeybug and became determined to keep my own bees.

The Warre Hive @ The Wagner Woodworks

I’ve never been one to walk along the beaten path, sometimes to my own peril. In the case of beehives, however, I’m glad that I chose the path less traveled. In researching alternative hives (relative to the overwhelmingly common Langstroth frame hives), I came across “The People’s Hive.” It was love at first site. I could build or over build, whichever suited my fancy. Square Warres with barn-style roof. I read Abbe Warre’s book Beekeeping For All to learn what went into the design of his hive. Octagonal Warre in stained pine. As a woodworker, I couldn’t be happier with the design. Over the last couple of years, and after building more than a dozen varients, I have settled on a production design for the square version.
