    Embarrassed Handle on the inside

    Well that just about says it all, no?

    One day I was slapping together hive supers without a care in the world. Unfortunately, the next day I realized on one lone box, on one lone side....ERROR, ERROR, ERROR. Of course the glue is nice and set now so it's a done deal. I don't mind not having a handle, as I still have three correct handles on the box. And by handle I mean a recessed area cut into the wood. But will the recessed area being on the INSIDE of the box cause me any grief? It's on the long side of the box facing the frames.

    thanks!

    I did that once, on only one box... three years later the box is still in use out in a yard somewhere. Every once in a while I notice it again when doing inspections, but it has yet to cause me any grief other than my own annoyance at myself

    I think most of us who have assembled a number of boxes all at once have at least done that one time before. I always chuckle when I come upon it in the yard.........

    You are not the first and won't be the last to do that. Yes I have done it also!

    Since that recessed area will violate bee space against the outside wall the bees will likely build burr comb in that area and fill it with honey. If not, they will likely propolize it back flat. Either way, no real problem. I guess most beekeepers have done this at one time or another.

    Desmond was smart and lucky enough to assemble his boxes in my shop. I caught him with this box before the glue dried. It pays to work with us 40+ year experience guys.
