This is my first Warre hive design. This hive body is sized close to Warre's dimensions but using imperial units and standard nominal lumber sizes to minimize ripping and maximize efficiency. The interior dimensions are 12" W x 12" L x 9-1/4" H which allows for eight bars 1-1/8" wide with 3/8" space between and at each end. There is an optional hive body with a downward hinged, insulated door over a 10-1/2" W x 6-1/4" H viewing window with latch. The entrance is a slot, 8" W x 3/4" H centered on the front end. The gabled roof is removable and overlaps the quilt box by 3-1/4". The bottom is fully open and covered with #6 hardware screen for ventilation and to allow mites and debris to fall through. I have designed top bar "open frames" using a 5/8" dowel centered in the top bar and supporting a 1-1/8" wide bottom bar, to use instead of just a plain top bar. They have a 1/8" groove on the top and bottom that can be filled with beeswax to hopefully help the bees keep the combs straight and aligned. The stand is 6" high to raise the hive body off the ground, yet not too high with five supers.
