Great NUC hive body
by Glen -
I wanted a solid, dependable NUC hive body with dependable joinery (no rabbit or end joints - solid wood). I'm more concerned with the quality than the time it takes to make woodenware usable. I work the wood to a good dry fit, thoroughly glue, clamp, and assemble with countersunk screws. I fill the countersunk holes with wood putty and sand the box to an even joint.
<br>These boxes require a little work to properly dry fit (they could be forced, but should not need to be forced). When properly clamped they come out a bit (1/16) under dimension. This is the case with all of the boxes I have bought from Brushy Mountain, so they all match and line up perfectly despite this small dimensional problem. These would be the correct size if they were not tightly clamped.
<br>These are my preferred NUC boxes. I am very pleased with the finished result. If you want good NUC boxes, these are the ones to buy.
