Working with 'Foundationless' frames

I've read recently how they bees like/prefer to make 'their own' comb.  However, we all have seen how they will go 'freestyle' and muck up a box pretty fast with bur comb and other strange wax creations!

So, here I'm working with a medium frame and a simple strip of wax foundation.  I just glued it into the groove and let them have it.

To help guide them, I just place this frame in between to already drawn combs.  This helps keep things straight and as you can see they  know just what to do.
