    Hello, Can anyone direct me to 5-frame nuc plans that use 2x12 lumber (rather than traditional 1x12 or plywood)? I would like to build some nuc bodies so I can eventually have an all 5-frame hive. I'm in Michigan where the winters are quite frigid so I would like to try 2" lumber. I've found...
