Where to put the fixings when building a hive box- distance from top and bottom
I am aware that this is probably up to the user's preference, but recently I built a box and put the end fixings only 20mm from the top and bottom. I've seen others where they look like they are at least 50mm from the top and bottom. I used stainless screws as that was what I had.
I'm wondering for next time if I've got them too close to the top and bottom and may split?
Any thoughts? Tx
