plastic to wood
some of y'all might have seen my other post about converting langstroth nuc frames to a horizontal hive. One workable suggestion I took away from that thread was you can rotate the langstroth frames.
I was planning to do that when it occurred to me I could just as well make a wider horizontal hive, i.e., wide enough to accommodate the 19" frames.
Then it occurred to me if I was going to do that I would have to figure out how to attach the plastic nuc frames I will be receiving to wooden top bars. I was thinking superglue.
I was also wanting to modify the nuc frames by attaching an upside down deep frame (wooden) to the bottom of the plastic nuc frame to make a double deep. I know that others have done this before, I was just wondering about the particulars of plastic nuc, with I assume plastic foundation attaching that to a wooden frame.
I've never worked with langstroth or plastic foundation. I'm wondering if I could poke (a) hole(s) in the foundation so that I could cable tie them together.
What do y'all think?
My grandfather and great-uncle kept bees and my fiancée's grandfather, too. I want to pass this tradition along.
