Frames first. Wedge tops or groove tops?
Bottoms: Divided bottoms or groove bottoms?
(you will get 20 opinions on this)
Well it depends on the type of foundation you want to use.
Groove tops and bottoms for plastic foundations. They just snap into place.
Wedge tops and divided bottoms for wax.
Foundation. White or black for brood chamber? All wax? Wax coated plastic? Duraglit?
Supers. Again all same questions regarding material and style for honey supers?
thanx in advance.
If you want plastic, go with wax coated. It gets better acceptance. Some like black in the brood chamber, it's easier to see eggs.
I use wax. . *shrug*
As far as supers, it depends on how you want to get your honey out. If you don't have an extractor and want to do crush and strain or comb, then you should use wax foundation without wires.
If you're going to extract, then use whatever you think you will like best.
