The 'masonite' board has a smooth side and a rough side. I would like to assemble with the smooth side towards the bees. The frame that holds the board has a slot cut into it that is closer to one side than the other.
So which side faces the bees? The shorter of the two? The longer?
I am using standard deeps.

In the winter you can flip the inner cover over and give the bees more "head room" above the frames, making it easier for the bees to cluster over the frame tops. I use both sides, depending on the season of year. Smooth.. rough.. I don't think they care.
