We've all seen those cool looking nautical knot boards with the bowlines, spanish bowlines, sheetbends, anchor hitch etc. My dad wants one of these to hang on his wall. We go to Panama City Beach Florida every year and the particular condo we stay in has one of these hanging in the living room. He comments on it every year and two years ago I promised him one from me, made by me.
Where can I get the material to pull this off? Has anyone here ever made one of these boards and are the materials available? The blue felt and frame is the easy part to acquire but proper cord, knot identification labels, and who knows what else could be hard to come by. Of course I could easily purchase one on the internet for 100-150 bucks and dad would be happy but I'd feel cheated. Any thoughts?
