I see no one has responded yet. No plans but the dimensions are 9 1/4" (short side), 20 1/8" long side. I use a rabbet joint myself so I cut my long side 3/4" shorter and use a 3/8" dado on the short side. I use a 3/8" deep dado that is 5/8" from the top. I only put hand holds on the long sides.

Good Luck

I sometimes place nucs side by side so my hand holds go on the short end.
Better balance also and less awkward as the weight is kept close to the body.
The same goes for full size boxes.Once you break the propolis seal between boxes,lift and carry by the short side handles.This brings the weight closer to your body for less back strain and more apparent strength.
