Low Tech Design — Beehive Stand

Here is a simple construction project to build a stand to hold beehives. It is another in the Low Tech Design series. You can find the library of Low Tech Designs under the “Publications” tab.


This stand can be built and installed in a hour or two. with simple tools and a minimum of materials. It is well sized for two hives. It can also be used as a basic plan for expansion.
