Re: Building a couple of nucs, confused on dimensions
I build mine to the same height as a standard box if you are referring to that dimension. We do mediums, so my height is the same 6 5/8" as the normal 10 frame medium boxes. I believe that a deep is 3" more than that, if I'm not mistaken. I assume you're doing the rebate method given your 19 1/9" dimension for the long direction of those sides.
The bottom board question that others raise is the likely explanation for the plan dimension you cite.
