Made a box joint style hive body in a hurry just as a test run. Forgot to check my joints :-P lol. They wernt deep enuf. Resulting in the box being just shy of 1/8th inch all around. Will the size increase make the bee space to large on the outside frames & frame ends ? There would be a 1/16th inch more wiggle room than normal. Just dont want to paint the box/start a hive in it. And have the bees make life a pain in the rear for me cus i made the test box to large.
Inside mesurments are 18 1/2- & 14 7/8-ths - means shy by a 1/32nd givertake
Im going to correct the problem so the rest of the boxes fit better. Like i said this was just a test run if it will come back and bite me in the butt ill just skip it and use it a a temporary hive like for a bee vac or swarm box.
