I'm wondering what the reasons are. Management of a national hive is the same as the management of a Langstroth hive, it won't be a different beekeeping experience. According to Dave Cushman the National was first known as the simplicity hive. It was supposed to be a hive that was easy to build without complex joinery. You can make a national with just a handsaw and a hammer, or these days with a cordless circular saw and a cordless drill. You could probably purchase the tools to make the boxes for less than the shipping.
