Actually the popscicle sticks run horizontally.

I've seen plenty of messed up foundation that was misdrawn, or it fell out and caused them to build wild comb.  I've seen more messed up comb from plastic foundation than I have from foundationless.

Micheal, thank you so much for posting the sticks go horizontal, that is how I placed mine and the whole time reading this thread I am thinking I am an idiot. Seems to be working great, but I am thinking "I hope that nobody sees my sticks and thinks I am an idiot" Not that I am not an idiot mind you, just don't want anyone to think that. HAHAHA. Anyway, I have a medium that I have wanted to use for chunk comb honey and so just open medium frames with sticks layed in the groove horitotal...
Thanks for all the help and advice.
