Re: Low cost bee box construction
I doubt you are any more humid than we are here in Richmond, VA. I do like Frank and use rabbeted joints on the boxes I make, but like the tight fitting joints of a well made finger joint. The Titebond III has held up well on both types. I also use a small brush to spead the glue evenly on all contact surfaces. Of course, I give my boxes a coat of oil based primer followed by two coats of latex top coat. I just last week had to take an unglued finger joint apart and it was a real pain. The replacement piece I made got glued in.
