ok.... just went there, thank you.
I do not quite understand everything though. Imperial measurements are not too common so I will need to convert but that is not an issue.
How do the bees get in? Do you make a hole in the hive body or is there space when the hive body sits on top of the bottom board? looks like the bottom board is larger which could leave a 3/8 slot of the whole width. Here with the Taiwanese box there are two small slots only which increases hive security.
Since the bottom board and the hive body are the same width, how do they lock together? Or does one just sit on top of the other and simply not move due to the weight?
Presumably the plywood on the inner cover is fitted in a similar way that the board on the bottom board fits onto the frame? (so a slot needs to be cut in the middle of the frame).
Sorry for the basic questions but explaining to the woodworker will be very detailed and very fundamental ...
