I buy unassembled frames from Brushy, they're just great by the way. Recently I bought a deep box and a bunch of deep frames to go with it but I've decided I should stick with all medium equipment so I'll have to cut the excess from the box and the frame ends.
1st question: why do the frame ends taper?
2nd question: is it okay if I just shorten the frame ends and cut the ends of the bottoms off so I can butt them together with glue and nails?
(I guess they won't be quite as strong but I'm not planning on using them in an extractor anyway because if I ever do have bees and actually harvest honey, I'll just cut out most of the comb and use the crush and strain method.)
Thanks in advance to all of you for your combined wisdom and continuing patience!
