Has anyone ever used yellow pine for hive bodies? I know raw yellow pine will warp quite a bit if left out in the elements and unfinished especially on a hot summer day. You'll end up with u shaped boards. I use quite a bit of in to make milled and turned high velocity HVAC registers for one of my customers so I regularly order descent sized quantities of 4quarter 10'-12' boards from the mill along with red oak, white oak, maple, etc. Basically I'm saying I can get really high quality, basically defect free, southern yellow pine for very reasonable prices and I was wondering how it holds up to the elements if made into a hive body and painted? I usually don't mess with anything but redwood, mahogany or one of the other rot/insect resistant woods for exterior use products. Would this hold up reasonably well for hive bodies?
