This display is finished with olive oil and beeswax. Since each display stand is hand made and one of a kind, there will be variations in the wood and may have minor chips or cracks.

We can ship anywhere in the USA.
Note: Cleanup will be easier if you put a tray or plate under the comb while cutting it. An 18″x4″ serving platter is ideal in this stand. Plate not included.
A note on honeycomb.
In the beehive, bees build honeycomb on frames using beeswax, which is made up of hexagon-shaped cylinders. Then the bees fill the comb with honey, and seal the individual cells with a wax lid. When we eat comb honey, we eat the wax, honey and all.
We give the bees an empty frame like this one.
Bees work to build honeycomb,
Then slowly fill the cells with honey,
Until they make a full frame of honeycomb with wax cappings.
We suggest that you purchase a frame of honeycomb from a local beekeeper who has a standard Langstroth beehive. Any depth of Langstroth frame could work. The display was designed for deep frames, but will hold medium and shallow frames with a larger space between the frame and the base of the stand.
