Title: Advanced Grid Maker
Post by: Phil_The_Rope on March 02, 2016, 11:52:07 PM
Hello boys and girls.

I've been a bit quiet of late because I'm nursing a wife with two broken wrists! However, I've found a little project to keep me occupied at home in between "carer" duties ...

Recently, I've been looking at John Allwines "Advanced Grid Maker" - for those who haven't seen it, this is a phenomenal FREE tool which makes life so much easier when designing turk's heads, gaucho knots, herringbone knots and pineapple knots. I intend to produce a series of videos showing how to use the tool, and my first one gives an introduction to the Advanced Grid Maker. Yes, it's a little long at 18 minutes, but anyone starting out tying turk's heads may find it useful -

I am in danger of exceeding my free bandwidth on Screencast.com, so I've republished the "Introduction to The Advanced Grid Maker" video to YouTube -
