Sorry for the slow response. Basicaly you take a pice of wood the size of the foundation you want and put a handle on the back then soak the wood in water then you melt a tray of beeswax big enough to fit the wood into then you dip the wet wood into the wax if you want it thicker let is solidify a bit then dip again thicker for perminant comb and thin for cut comb honey. Then take a knife and trim the edges and peal off the sheet the water prevents the wax from sticking. Then while its still warm roll with a pice of pipe or roling pin this makes the wax less brittle. Hope that helps.
