The two top covers I purchased from Rossman warped. So I would like to make my own Reversible or flat cover out of 3/4 inch plywood. Can someone tell me the dimensions for the board and rails. If you can post a set of plans that would be great.

I am using 8 frame mediums

Thanks,
Brooklyn

Some eight frame eqiupment is 13 3/4" wide. Some is 14" wide. Mine are 13 3/4". My lids are 13 3/4" by 19 7/8" As mentioned, when the warp you can flip them over. Or put more bricks in the right places to push them back down...

A couple of ratchet straps can also work well in taking the warp out. Wrap the hive with a couple of straps and pull them down until the top site flat.
