Is there any disadvantage for planning my wood for nuc boxes prior to building (using rabbet joints).Guy approached me today about building 50 nuc boxes for his nonprofit bee club. I told him I have a stack of box parts now and it would be a while before I clear it enough to get the planer out. He said rough cut is fine, no hand holds, assembled-cheap.
I wondered if there was any disadvantage to running rough cut (other than more paint to cover the outside).
I have no SHB in this cold rainy area.
It would be a ‘one off run’.
Do you guys attach the bottoms?
Plans? I would assume I would need to add some width since my wood would be close to 1 1/16” minimum.
