Re: Nuc Hives for Aching Backs
I thought that the "hive designs" thread by Fusion_power describing among other things the modified square Dadant jumbo was fascinating. I also thought that placing 6-frame (yes, nonstandard) probably medium supers on top of the square brood box in pairs, sized just to fit, would be a primo back-saver. Guess why I'm thinking about this. At 6-frame width, they could even be deeps. Or Langstroth jumbos at 11-1/8", for the present. While it's not _yet_ a crucial thing for me, it may become more important.
But I thought the square layout looked interesting and that using paired supers with a 2:1 aspect ratio would make them stack beautifully on the square bottom box.
