Help to build a TBH on short notice
Guy came over with a bunch of wood for a TBH said his package was coming on Friday. Trying to make what the pictures look like from what he purchased. He had 2 1/2” boards I cut down to just under 1 ¼” (he did not understand kirf): Can I put spacers on the TB’s to get the distance up or will it be a propilis mess? He had ¼” square stock for his wedges, I cut a pair of 45 degree angles through the top bar and had him glue in the blocks in the grove. This will leave an open “V” in the ends: does that matter? How long should I cut the V blocks? Figure about ¼” on each end short to keep them from building to the wall. The follower boards I tried to center in the top bars, does it matter for bee space? How many TB’s do I need to have finished so that he can install his package, 5 maybe? I gave him enough Lang gear to put his package in if we do not get it done, is there a decent way to convert from a deep to a Lang if it was a short time and they are not well established. Sorry for the short notice questions, I am a guy that plans everything for a month and he is a bit more free wheeling.
