I usually just harvest a frame at a time, when my wife says we're out of honey. I hold the foundationless frame over a big bowl, cut it out and let it plop in, then cut it up with a knife. The goal is to cut every cell. Then I spoon it into a Mason jar, and tape that jar over another with a piece of window screen in between. Put them in the sun for a few hours and you have a jar of strained honey and a jar of wax ready to be melted.
