Honey Bee Hive Box Joints Template Answered
Do any of you woodworking wizards or experts know how to make a box joint template. I need to replace many of my Honey Bee Hive Supers (boxes) due to Bears, time & weather. The wood is pine and about seven-eighths thick , five and three quarters tall or high, twenty inches long for the front and back, the sides are sixteen and one quarter long by five and three quarters tall or high. This forms a box that holds ten extracting frames for the honey in combs. It weighs forty pounds when full of honey comb wax and honey. I like this size because it doesn't brake your back like the standard one that weigh in at eighty pounds when full! Although I use both sizes. Any ideas how to make this template will be deeply appreciated. I also have a multiple dado blade setup, so I can cut a pretty wide dado at one pass on the table saw. Thanks. Triumphman.
