Thank you MM. That will keep me busy this winter! I've decided to move to 14 x 12s, so I'll be needing a nuc box or two.

Just to confirm and in the spirit of 'measure twice, cut once' if I'm building the same nuc for standard sized frames rather than 14 x 12, the cutting list is the same except for the brood box sides and ends which are changed to:

2 x 460mm x 240mm
2 x 206mm x 217mm

Hedgerow Pete makes it all look deceptively simple but I predict there will be much :banghead:

Thanks
