Re: Nails are shipped with assembly of the hive required but would screws be better?
With some glue it won't much matter. Technically yes, the screws are probably the better choice but I use staples and glue and there's not much that will break the joint. Couple of years ago I forgot to staple one side of a box. I had glued and fitted it but must have been interrupted while stapling. I even sanded, primed and painted it and never noticed. Last year I was culling old frames and finally noticed it. Even though I laughed and put staples in it, I'm not sure I made it any stronger. It seemed fine just the way it was and it had been outside for a couple of seasons.
