Being new to this and cheap, I plan to build my own hive bodies. After researching I plan to go 8 frame medium bodies. I have access to lots of free scrap (but useful size for hives) 1" plywood. It seems as though plywood is not perfect for bodies but after doing some cutting it looks like it will work out fairly well except for the fact that it's 1" rather than 3/4". I plan to join the wood using some rabbet joints rather than butt joints.
Aside from being non-standard, am I going to run into any horrible issues by using 1" wood instead of 3/4"? It seems as though I will be limited with possible hive parts from suppliers and will be forced to make most items which I think I'm ok with. I figure I can make the cover and the bottom somehow. But is there anything else critical I'm missing?
