I need to order a few 8 frame mediums, but am thinking of buying deeps (unassembled) instead, assemble, and cut them down to size. I'd use the cut-off sections to make a few Winter quilt boxes and maybe a couple of spacers. Are there any other suggestions as to what hive accessories can be made from these slightly less than 3" deep cut-off's? Is it worth the few bucks extra cost so that I'll have finger jointed rectangles to start with? Has anyone else done this?
