Metal corner brackets
« on: June 29, 2015, 05:17:57 PM »
Hi,
Can any one advise me as to where I can buy these corner brackets for joining new boxes together as seen in this YouTube video please.



Thank you.

Ken.

Look at the video title and do a search on the internet.  It comes right up.

I had the same idea and, of course, someone had already done it.  I decided they were too expensive.

I opted for Kreg Pocket holes/screws. I use two bar clamps to hold them for the screwing part. I use 5 screws for Deeps and 4 for honey supers.

I may try using glue also but thus far just the screws.

I tried to post a pic but my pic files were too big.

I think he also has the brackets in copper.  You can make a very fancy looking garden hive with the cooper and a copper top.  He has some other frame rest pieces etc.  They are pretty expensive, but certainly strong and pretty...

Using the brackets, in the vid how big of a space do you get between boxes with one sitting on top of the other.

If you look closely you will see the boards are routed for the brackets.  If the wood was replaced with plastic lumber the box could last a life time.
