After reading Mr. Bush's website I've decided that going foundationless makes a whole lot of sense. Now, I'm a new beek starting my first two colonies from 5 frame nucs on deep frames in April. I don't have extra drawn frames to act as a guide, just the 5 frames from the nuc. Is there a good way to start with those 5 frames and get the bees to build straight comb on foundationless frames? Seems to me I could arrange frames like this:


E= empty frame
H= frame of honey and pollen from nuc
B= frame of capped brood from nuc

Am I just better off using foundation until I have enough drawn frames to use as a guide on either side of an empty foundationless frame?
