Double Screen Boards

1584 4
When they use the word "double" in double screen board does that mean there is two screens or is double because you can have a colony on each side?

I need to build one (doing a laying worker combine) and most of the pictures I can find look like just one layer of screen.

I found plans here but it's not super clear either.

A double screen board is a wooden frame, the size of a super or an inner cover, w/ screen on both sides.

Doing a laying worker combine, why don't you just use newspaper, say two sheets and don't punch or slice any holes in the paper? The bees will chew through the paper and get to know each other and get together.
