We LOVE your picnic table design! Also, we would like to see your design for bee hives. Thanks and regards, SylvanLady

To make our beehives we used the free to down load plans available at Beesource.

However, I do use commercially made Brood and super frames which i buy from my local bee supply company.

You just need to take into account the thickness and board with of the reclaimed pallet timbers you are using, so the internal dimensions of the Hives are much more important than the exterior dimensions. The internal diamensions are critical if like me you are using commercially made Brood box and super frames.
