Re: Easy 5-frame nuc plans
Personally, I like the 2 '4 X '4 pieces as they are easier to handle and get clean cuts with, but I have no drawings. Also, Ben are you taking into account the material that will be consumed with the curfs?

When the season is over and the queens have been removed, add a drawn frame, combine the bottomless nuc on top of a queenright nuc and you've got a 10 frame vertical nuc. It also gives you a cheap quick answer if one of your nucs needs more space ASAP.
