paracord guts braided.
a sling i made for slinging.org out of jute, braided 6 strand, loop braided in, two woven pieces for the split pouch, braid whipped after for durability (less than 5'). also, a 7 ft hank of braided 550 i just made happen for this lesson whipped at one end and figure 8'd at the other to be used for a lanyard/strap on a leather flask im building for my 11 year old out of the panel of a busted football.
Was not sure if the eye splice was required did not do one. Can if it is required sitting in the back seat on the way to Idaho and decided to get the braiding man made material done. Hope this works.
Nothing fancy. But it shows I know how to braid. My mother taught me when I was a little boy. She had me braid my sister's hair for practice. Sowing too was a skill she taught me. She once told me that a man that doesn't know how to braid or sow isn't a self-sufficient man.
I used #36 bank line. This completes my basic requirements. Now a few electives. Onward!
Eight feet of braided jute.
