I am gonna build a couple of slatted bottom boards and looking over the plans, I see there is one wide slat and then a bunch of narrow slats. My question is this: If this sits between the bottom board and the first hive body, why would you want the wide slat? Seems like all the slats should be narrow. I don't think I can post a link so the plans can be found at beesource.com. I'm gonna sign off for now but I'll check back later for answers.
Thanks as always!
