G'day Everybody,

I've got access to some beautiful blackwood timbers and i'm thinking about making some hive bodies out of it... are the standard dimensions for a hive body:

Full depth:           243mm deep X 19mm wide
Medium depth:      168 deep X 19mm wide

is that correct?

Those numbers are correct. Just make sure, since you're "Downunder" that you measure from the bottom of all your boards.  grin
