    This is not me I copied the post

    Here are plans and measurements for nucs I make. I think they are simple and you can make 4 five-frame nucs out of one piece of 15/32 plywood that sells for $10 at Lowes or Home Depot. I use them for swarm traps, queen breeding nucs, and I overwinter nucs with Fall queens in them. I also leave the bottom off of some to stack on other nucs to make 10 frame nucs. I use thin 1 1/4 inch nails, titebond III glue, and I paint them to ensure I get many years of service out of them.

    Looking for MINI NUCS.With screen bottom.
    How do you make the frames.

    I would like to try and make them but would also look at purchasing them

    Thanks for the full size plans. To big for what I want to do. I don't have a lot of resources at this time. Bees
    The MINI NUCS should work.

    These are what I use in my mini's. I put 2 of them attached long wise into a full deep and they build them out. This year I will leave them long enough to have them fill them for me then I will move them to my quad mini with a cup of bee's and see what they can do. I am going to try about 2 quads this year along with a deep I have cut up into 4 double frame deep boxes as starters.
