No laminated woods used in the hive except for plywood as we have found it holds up better and provides weight in the Telescoping & inner covers. Frames are wood with quality beeswax wired foundation. Crafted by New Hampshire & Maine carpenters. Only the boxes and frames are unassembled. One deep and two mediums.
