Cod Net
« on: August 11, 2010, 12:26:05 AM »
This net is based on cod nets once used in the Northwest US by Native Americans.  Since I don't fish I will use it for storage of some sort.  Tony


The wood is a fast growing weed tree (I believe sumac) that I debarked and bent without steaming.
The frame is 12" x 8".  I made the net from linen twine, 20" deep. I got the idea from this Google (free) book. http://books.google.com/books?id=fudyXm4KMpQC&printsec=frontcover&dq=indian+fishing&hl=en&ei=FTdbTKf1H8P88Aa52526Ag&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CDEQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q&f=false
go to table of contents -  to "nets and netting" then to page 88.  Tony
