    Welcome. That's a wide open subject. Lots of personal preferences on hive stands. Try a search on hive stands if you haven't already.

    Biff,
    Each different hive stand has its own advantages and disadvantages. What's good in one place or during one season may be totally out of synch another time. So keep your hive stands simple and flexible.
    Lately I've been using plastic drink delivery cases. Our local "Coke" plastic case is just the right height and shape, while being light, strong and durable at the same time. I don't steal them, but when I find one thrown away, I "adopt" it. They're great.
