    Yup. Do some research, make a jig, and learn how to do finger joints. They are sturdier and longer lasting, plus they look classier too. Rabbetted corners don't look good when they start to warp and gap with time. Nice work though! I love woodworking and imagine you do to. Great attitude asking for help and input.

    Many beeks also like routed or cut handles instead of external handles. It makes for more efficient stacking and up north, makes for less work wrapping the hives for winter.

    Adding woodware making/selling to your bee business is a good addition. I can make boxes for less than $4 and sell them for over $12. Not a lot, but it helps. What I don't sell, I can use- and $4 a box is pretty cheap.

    Good luck!
