  • And he caught a steer

    Poor old steer was so skinny he couldn't get away very fast.

                  Thanks Herb and it looks nice there. I'll have to try that in the future when I need a rope. I'm not so much of a purist that I want/need to carve it. Nice idea.

                      Bill: Making a rope is one of the simpler things in life, once you know how.
                      Photo 1. Take a length of string, thread, whatever 3 times as long as you want the rope to be and tie one end to something solid. Put the other end into your drill.
                      Photo 2. Turn on the drill and twist it up tighter.
                      Photo 3. Put a paper clip with a weight on it (I had a short piece so just used my fingers) and pull to one side as you move the drill close to the other end.
                      Photo 4. The string will twist up on itself as the drill gets closer to the secure point.
                      Photo 5. When the drill gets close to the secure point, put a drop of CA glue (Krazy glue) on it as shown. When the glue dries, cut off the two ends. I used a marker on the end where I put the glue so you could see it.
                      Photo 6. The finished rope.
                      The process is called Furling.

                          Thanks Claude and looks simple enough. The technicians would twist wires in a similar process to make twisted wire cable...cheaper than buying Twinax. I've used string in the past for "rope" since all my carvings are small and about the same size.
