Over the Winter Built 3,000 frames, 300 "all" medium 8 Frame Langstroth type Bodies, 50 Telescopic Covers, 50 combination Inner/Ventilator/Insulator/Feeder (supports 5 1qt Jars) Covers, 50 bottom boards (w/oil pans for our friends the SHB). Ready to collect 50 swarms & save a million bees.
Regarding making frames & reviewed Huber's New Observations Upon Bees The Complete Volumes 1 & 2 and the The Practical Beekeeper Beekeeping Naturally; I went with narrow frames not currently offered by vendors so had to build my own. 9 frames (1-1/4" side bars) in the Brood Chamber and 8 frames (1-1/2" side bars) in the Supers both style frames with 7/8" top bars.
side bars: scrap 2 x 4s; cut to length/dado both ends (same size cuts & make yourself a sled for the table saw to do these cuts, use router table to cut detent for beespace on side bars, run the sections of 2 x 4 thru table saw one gets 7 side bars per section of scrap 2 x 4).
Get with local sawmill for rough cut lumber (1" x 8" x 8' about $2.30 a pop), select thickness well and/or let the saw mill folks know that dressed out you will need 7/8 thickness. Plane to 7/8", square boards on tablesaw, cut to length, cut frames rests w/dado, rip boards to 1-1/8", as I am running foundationless so I used a 45 degree chamfer bit on router table to cut the comb guide into the frame, use tablesaw with dado blade for cutting slots for side bars (build a tablesaw sled for those cuts), bottom bar pretty straight forward.
Any number of sources on the www for frame dimesions.
Retired early and somewhat able to do what I want, to much time on my hands and to little money.
