    Cool Re: Illinois supers and medium supers

    Hi Mike,

    Do you have a link or specifications to make an 8 frame Medium, Illinois 6 5/8" 48-56 lbs?
    I plan to build/buy a few such hives (complete hive) and thought I will check with you.

    Thank you!

    If you go here:
    http://www.beesource.com/build-it-yo...-barry-birkey/

    You'll find plans for a 10 frame. Just make the overall width 13 3/4" instead of 16 1/4".

    Using 3/4" lumber the outside dimensions are 16 1/4" by 19 7/8" by 6 5/8".
