Nice thinking! But it's still a box.
You shouldn't start threads when you've been drinking, especially before 9:00am!
I bought hives off a guy in TN who made them that way. Even had modified telescoping tops that created an "awning" over the entrance. He claimed it gave the bees better ventilation, as there was a larger opening than the standard way. I didn't notice any difference myself.
