I live in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean where at least 1/3 of my beekeeping costs come from shipping in heavy hive components (e.g., unassembled supers). I want to save some money by building my own supers from local lumber, but the only lumber I can get at a reasonable price is 3/4-inch thick. So my question is...
Can I make my supers from 3/4-inch lumber instead of the usual 7/8-inch?
What difference does that 1/8th of inch make?
My local climate is a bit on the wet side, wet springs, short summers, winters long and damp but generally mild.
