Is there any supplier that makes 6 3/4" tall sides for frames? I just don't understand the love affair with the antiquated measurement system that is still in place with beekeeping woodenware. It would be really nice to be able to use a dressed 1x8 (7 1/4") without ripping off 5/8" of it and throwing it away. It takes a dressed 1x12 to make a 9 5/8" deep, so more of that wood goes to waste. It seems that someone in the woodenware business would jump on this and make a fortune.
I think a 7 1/4" box would be a perfect compromise between a deep and a medium.
