My Rossman order arrived today. I got 6 slatted racks for 10 frame hives and a bunch of NUC boxes & parts. The packers at Rossman know their stuff. 2 *50 pound packages with parts packed so there was zero wasted space. Evidently it's illegal to send any air in the box After sorting things out and assembling most of the goodies...I need (want) to apply a finish. I plan on using boiled linseed oil cut ~10% with thinner that I've dissolved beeswax in.
Should I apply the oil to the slats too, or just the exterior? Along the same lines, what about the interior parts...inner cover, hive bodies, etc.
