Bottoms for Nuc Boxes?
« on: Today at 09:00:48 pm »
For people using a 4 or 5 frame nuc box, how are you making the bottom? 

i used a 5 frame for the first time this year, one with a traditional style bottom board scaled down for 5 frames.  It worked good, bees did well, but its extra work to make this as opposed to just making the end and side pieces a little longer and permanently fastening a flat board for the bottom.

An advantage of making all nuc bodies as a scaled down deep hive body would make it easier to stack, and just one design.  For people using the fastened bottom, how does that work for you, any advantages beyond easier construction and easier moving of the nuc?
