I did some last year. Doing more this year. It’s your basic foundationless setup. Make sure you put the frame between two drawn frames. I break a paint stick in half or quarters where the guide is 3/8” or so. They draw out a nice looking frame. And quickly too.

There is a good detailed article in BC (I think) about it, about 1 ½-2 years ago. The lady makes her own frames. Makes them wider to have a nice cut comb width. Which I am going to try some of those this year. I have the article at home. I can scan and email it to you if you want it.

Was planning on making up some thin foundation for my wood comb boxes, and then I thought, why dont I just put in a leader piece of wax and let them fill it out themselves...Anyone tried this?
Absolutely the way to go, this is how I make my comb honey. Without the thin foundation there is less wax per bite...this difference makes it more delicate and delicious.
