Re: 8-frame super dimensions
Good luck and I hope everything goes well. What width (thickness) lumber will you be using? The Bee Commerce (I think it is) 8 frame 14 inch wide super is made using 1 inch lumber that has only been dressed down to 7/8 of a inch thick instead of the 3/4 inch board thickness used by most other equipment makers. Because each sidepiece is 1/8 of an inch thicker, it results in an 8-frame hive that is 14 inches wide (overall) instead of 13.75 inches. The inter dimensions however remain the same at 12 1/4 inches. I don't know if you know this or have thought it out but I wanted to toss it out there for your possible benefit.
