Building some half frames to go in a mini hive and was thinking about using 1/4 inch dowels as the side bars. Any input would be appreciated. The side bars only need to be approximately 4 inches in length.

I'm not aware of any problems the dowel rods might cause.

On one of the threads here there was a picture of frames that were made just as you describe. There was no bottom bar just the two dowels. Sure would be simple!

I decided to go a even simpler route and just use the 1/4 inch skewers as top bars just like Sam Comfort does in his modified warre style hive. But thanks for the input its appreciated.
