3 strand 1/4" poly rope mini whisk broom
@asemery, you don't post much, but I want you to know I read them all with interest, even if I don't comment on them... always fascinating what you manage to make. Thanks for sharing.
What kind of knot is that on top (looks like an "end slice" like I learned in Scouts), and how did you do the rest of it? Assume just a lot of combing, but that might be too simple...
^^^So true! Still dig that high viz vest he made a while back.
I took the rope, unlaid the strands for 12", tied a manrope (wall and crown) knot and combed out the 6 strands. Overall length - 3"
how stiff are the "bristles" on that? just wondering what you'd use a broom like that for.personally,i'm trying to figure out if it'd be just the ticket for clearing off the workbench in the midst of woodworking. thanks for sharing the pic and the words of instruction!
Here is another larger one I made. I have heard it called a "bosun's brush" - 1/2" manila rope folded in half. 2 ends tied in 2 strand diamond (lanyard) knot. Ends combed out and trimmed. That or a larger one would be better for your purpose
The shorter the brush, the stiffer the brush. My wife has taken the smaller yellow brush as a mushroom brush.
I thought that I was posting too much - over 30 contributions this year
No... I post too much!
