Inner Cover Build # 1 Here we go, for those of you that use inner covers (or would like to). This will take 2 threads as there is a 10 picture limit. Because we use 7/8" pine up here for hive material that is what the pictures will show. Using your 7/8" pine, rip strips 1 1/4" wide. Cut 2 pieces 16 3/4" and 2 pieces 19" long. Rip a groove the thickness of the plywood you are going to use (I had 5/16" plywood) down the length of your pieces on the narrow side. Make the cut about 9/16" deep (to allow for a little play in final assembly). Take your 2 pieces that are 16 3/4" and cut the ends 1 1/4" in, and 3/4" deep. You should end up with ends that look like this on those 2 pieces. See next thread for continuation of this build!
