Looking for 8 frame mediums Blueprints
« on: March 18, 2012, 09:28:03 PM »
Hi, as mentioned in the topic, I am looking for 8 frame mediums blueprints, foundationless with a guide.  Trying to build some for myself. 

Greatly appreciate it if anyone can give me a good link or point me in the right direction.

Boxes are 13 3/4" wide, 19 7/8" long, 6 5/8" deep. Look on Youtube.com for hive building videos, lots of them there. Just buy your frames, they're too cheap to mess around building them. One other suggestion: buy a complete hive setup, ie hive body, screened bottom board, lid, from Dadant or others and copy it.

Find plans for a ten frame box and subtract 2 1/2" off of the width.
