    Are you wanting plans for using one thickness of plywood and no dados for the frame rests? Check out D Coats plans.
    The ones i make have 1/2 ply for the sides and the bottom, 1x12 pieces for the ends, and 5/8s for the lids.

    check out april issue 2010 of bee culture mag. Peter Sieling has an article titled "make the simplest hive". could easily be modified for a five frame nuc. no rabbits used. really simple design i have made a few and they are simple and work great and can be used with standard equip.
