I'm new to TBH but have been tinkering with various hive designs and started thinking about the bars and strengthening the comb.

What do y'all think about running a thin (1/8") dowel or three perpendicular to the top bar so that the dowels "hang", thereby creating more comb stability in the way that wire foundation would in a lang frame?

might this also keep the comb more straight or will the ladies freak out and hate the dowels?
