Do I need to plane the wood?
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.
