I just know that there are some people out there that are continuing to tie knots other than only practical ones. Hopefully you will join me and display your work.
I had this knife that the handle was odd shaped and uncomfortable so I used tarred seine and "decorated" it. It smacks of practical, but  thought it should go in this thread.

Here's a pair of small bottles with opposing colors that I had tied a few months ago. I haven't taken any pictures of my latest work so will need to dust off the ol' camera.  ;D

Nice work Brian. Is that from the new kangaroo hide that you just received?

Not too knotty... but here's a puzzle inspired by ABOK #2616

Pull middle through hole as far as it will go and then split the two. One going to the right and the other going to the left. My best guess.

Excellent.....................FANTASTIC I love posts like this as I get to see some wonderful craftsmanship!!! It also forces me to catalogue some of the work that I have done so far.

Here is a cat of nine tails that I made a little while ago.



This is now my needle container, it was a container for test strips.



This wonderful stainless steel and brass fid was made by PJ over the pond in the States, all I had to do was dress it.



The grip fid was also made by PJ, I added the antler horn. I also incorporated two lock nuts so that I could adjust the way it sits in my hand when doing certain tight work.



This was an old pot that was kicking around and destined for the tip. Now holds my pens in the office.



EVERYBODY beginners and experts post your stuff on here.........don't be shy!!!

Great looking work Johnny. And such enthusiasm too!
I love when we get excited about our work and the work of others. What it is all about with decorative knotting I think.
Amazing how addictive it is.

PJ's tooling work is impressive. His knot work is as well.
If anyone has a custom tool idea and wants to tempt reality, he's the man.

And to repeat Johnny: "Don't be shy."
Please, your work just may inspire another's.
