Ok, this might open a can of worms. But, I'm going to do it anyways! lol I've been making my own hive boxes using finger joints. I don't have a dado blade yet so I go to my brothers. They are a pain in the butt to make but lock in nicely and squaring them is easy. They do use a lot of screws! 40 screws box! I need to make more and was wondering about rabbet joints. Easier to make, less end grain. A little more work to square up. But, I like to know how well do they hold up years down the road. I glue everything with Titebond III and use deck screws on all my boxes but, I wouldn't have to use soooo many! Upside? Downside?
