    Re: Top Bar Thickness?

    What thickness did you settle on, and how is it working out?
    I plan on a thickness of 1 1/2" for insulation purposes and no cutting.

    Re: TBH broodnest size

    NUBee question: With the 15 combs (in ideal world); how many of the 15 would be 1.25" "brood" bars leaving x-number of 1.5" bars food storage?
