    Default 23/32" Advantech with Coates Nuc box plans

    Didn't want to hijack another thread about plywood Nucs with my question.

    Since Advantech 23/32" is close to 3/4" and the Coates plans are based on 1/2" plywood, do I need to adjust measurements for the thicker wood?

    It seems that most plywood thickness these days is all based on fractions for some reason.
    At Lowes, 23/32 Advantech is $32.97
    and 19/32 pine rated sheathing is $23.47

    All the Nucs will be painted.

    Is the added cost of Advantech worth it?
    Is the thicker plywood better for a Nuc?

    Bought 3 sheets this stuff the other day. I had to adjust the meaurement because my nucs are five framers, but mine consist of 4 frames, frame feeder, and some space for a queen cage. I still get 4 nucs out of a sheet.

    I'm planning to make 8 Nucs with at least one extra super for each.
    Haven't studied the Coates plans enough yet to figure out how many supers can be made from a single sheet.

    Greg, I'd like to see those dimensions and thank you for sharing.
