Thaks!

Thinking about making a set, at least one for my wife. I have made a 5 knot trivet from 8 mm sisal.

My first attempt at making a lanyard it's a test before I make one with decent rope. This was just 5euro for 50m PP from aliexpress. The tightness on the 17 strand french sennit is all over the place some areas are tight some are loose. This might be because the rope has 0 rigidity and is also hollow and without a core and has some stretch to it. It also could be a lack of skill or both. I am looking forward to making one with some hard 3strand cotton rope. I think this would solve some of the problems. If anyone has some tips to make the next one better feel free to reply or send a message.

Hi jensens.v and welcome.

Your work is pretty good considering the challenge given to you via the chosen cord.
A quality hard-ish laid cord can help immensely. Too hard and that gives challenges as well.
There are some real good braided cords out there to consider also.
Only tip I have is to fair and snug consistently all the way.
Thanks fort sharing.

I made a press for someone who uses molds to press out various shapes of bath products.  A little rope work on the handle, and a little trim on the press completes this tool.

Thank You, Struktor, for posting this excellent tutorial back in February, 2019.  While it is hanging on the tree now, it's also going to stick around until Valentine's Day.

Tarred Hemp.  Very stiff material, and smells like, well, tar.

My daughter, a Guide leader, asked me to pinch hit for a meeting where the guest had to cancel.  I said, of course, but then had to scramble to produce a class in a day.  I made it more difficult for myself in that I didn't want to do macrame or scoubidou, so no macrame dragonflies or lanyard bracelets.  They were "hiring" a Chinese knotter, gosh darn it!   ;D

I decided on a phoenix tail bracelet (with Chinese button knot finish if we need the extra material to make time), along with some lark's head flowers that I had clipped from zhongguojie.org years ago.  I already had the instruction sheets for phoenix tail and button knot, but not the LHF or the horizontal double connection knot for finishing the flower (since we didn't want to be telling 9 year olds to play with fire to finish the knots).  I provided satin cord for the bracelets (rainbow, of course) and paracord for the flowers since in the testing of the project I found the satin cord a bit slippery for manipulating the lark's heads but paracord added just that extra grip to make the project less fiddly.

Attached are images of the LHF test sample (both sides, since they're asymmetrical) as guilders might be unfamiliar.  I assume y'all know what phoenix tail looks like.   ;)
