Thanks for your comment.  Everyone has their favourite way to assemble frames - and this is how we do it.  Dave Cushman's page in a wealth of knowledge of course as you know.

My question is:-
Is it necessary to have bee wax in every frame, I have no these yellow papers, is there any alternative, can I put simple frames without these yellow sheets

I'm with Diane - 4 nails are better than two - 5lbs of honey or a proplised-in frame is a lot of pressure on just two nails.  Nailing the wedge at an angle makes little sense - miss the nail and you go through the wax with the hammer and there's a good chance the nail will pop out through the top bar.  BBKA Basic also recommends 11 nails...
