Just an FYI, Both Home Depots in my area have their 1x8 12 footers on clearence for 8 dollars. regular 12.95. You can almost get 2 mediums out of a 12 footer. Just thought I would pass this on. I think I may load up and make mediums all winter. Here is my new boxes I am making. Made everything but the frames. Stand, bottom boards and deeps. Top bar hive my neighbor made. Gonna build one of these this winter also.
