NOTE: This ad is for the SVG file so you can laser cut your own tiny bee hive on a Glowforge. Laser cutters are popping up everywhere. Check availability at your local library, Joann Fabrics, or maker space. Get your parts cut and take them home to glue 'em together.

Tiny toy bee hive stands 2.25" inches tall, 2" inches wide. It's the perfect gift for a bee keeper. You will need access to a laser cutter that uses SVG files, 1/8" inch thick plywood, and glue. White glue, wood glue, or super glue will work.

I design for Glowforge, so my steps are made in color. Steps and settings are:

1. BLUE = Engrave (HD Graphic)
2. GREEN = Score (High Quality)
3. RED = Cut
4. BLACK = Cut

Before you glue it all together, let’s see where everything goes. See photos above.
To build the box you need 2 long sides, 2 short sides, and 2 little slivers I call runners.
Fit the short and long ends together into a box so the bees are all along the bottom.
Looking at a smaller end of the box, you will notice a small gap on each side near the corner where the tabs connect. The little runner goes in that gap across the top into the other side’s gap.
The runner’s function is to hang the trays. It works just like a vertical filing system.
Be sure to include those two little runners across the top when you glue the box together.
You will notice that only one of the long front pieces has an arched “doorway” at the bottom. That’s the bottom box when the hive is stacked. The top box stacks evenly on the bottom box.

Feel free to customize this design. Commercial use is OK, but please do not resell the SVG you downloaded. Thanks!

I use the free program Inkscape to design these SVG files (found at: inkscape.org). If you need any other format other than SVG you will need to open the SVG in Inkscape and SAVE AS > (choose: PDF, DXF, etc...) I also teach a course called: Learn Inkscape For Glowforge. Using this course you could customize these designs. The details are on my web site: JEMTOY.com

NOTE: Do not open this SVG file in CorelDraw. You must download the free program from Inkscape.org and use Inkscape to modify this SVG file.

My MIL is a bee keeper and sells honey for a living and this file worked like a dream as a cute little display when she does fairs and markets.
