I also have some used deep hive bodies that I assembled.  I glued and nailed them and painted 3 coats, 1 oil based primer and 2 coats of top of the line Sherwin Williams white latex paint. $15 TO $25 each, depending on overall condition.  All are in good serviceable condition.

In addition lots of used deep frames. Some frames have had the comb removed, some not.  Frames without foundation are $1.00 each, with plastic foundation $1.25 each.

Perhaps I will have a few inner and top covers and a few bottom boards.
