Yes they are easy to follow and build. I suggest anyone making their own boxes to invest in a box joint jig. Unless you enjoy spending time a widlelin on it cheesy

Can I recommend David Cushmans site also?

I've found it a superb resource for building UK National Hives, but he has many others from the UK, Ireland and worldwide...

The info I used for the UK national

http://website.lineone.net/~dave.cushman/nat.html

Although there is literally loads of other designs/info.

heres the link to some Langstroth design information

I tried the PDF files and they opened fine. Might have just been a problem with the server for you, or something else.

Forgive my ignorance, I'm just getting started with woodworking, but I was looking at the plans at

http://website.lineone.net/~dave.cushman/nat.html

and was wondering;
1 - what does splayed and rebated mean?
2 - what does it mean when it says "Note  The front and back are set 9 mm up from the baseline. "?

Any help greatly appreciated, btw, i got a table router for xmas, cant wait to build my first hive, even if there's no bees in it for a while!

*EDIT* I think I've worked it out - splayed just means a bevel on the top edge of the bottom rails, but does rebated mean a rebate along the length of the top rail, on the inside edge?

Cheers

It is more than just that.  The frames are british standard-like design with longer tabs which lead to better end gap alignment and reduce propolis.  It is not worth the effort to build a square Langstroth framed hive, you will build in the same propolis deficiencies of a normal Langstroth hive.  You are better off to just use standard size Langstroth boxes and build the modified bottom board and ventilation box as offered by beeworks.

Ryan,

Consider skipping the nucs and build some double screen boards instead.  I find splits grow much faster with the double screen board and best of all, all you equipment is standard and interchangeable.
