Knot Board

Knot Board

Made another knot board for the oldest grandson.
Put in a few more knots than the last time.
Board is poplar.

Knot too shabby Madts. Does it come with grandpa’s instruction and description of the various uses of the various knots?

I love it. But I don’t see any knots in your boards. Just some very clear lumber with some strings tied together. LOL

Yes Paul it comes with instructions.
Thanks for all the puns on this very serious project to a young lad.

well done Madts. It reminds me of my Navy days. I used to be able to do that stuff, but I have now forgotten most of it. The one knot that I haven’t forgotten and still find the most useful and reliable is the simple bowline. Easy to tie and easy to untie. I use it all the time.
