First Try At Hobbles With Paracord
Posted 29 November 2010 - 01:30 PM
I gave up on the 8 strand turning to 16 and just went on with folding over the 8 strand,,, YES YES call me a cheater cheater. I used tape under the knot but I need to try harder to make it come out round or something. I was kinda hoping that it would cover the end but it didn't.
Well just wanted to ask the cowboys if I need to start over or continue with it. I diffently don't want to finish something that would maybe hurt the horse.
Any advice, comments are always appriciated and a welcome sight.

The other thing to consider is that paracord might get a bit hot with friction so I don't think I'd use this set on a horse that isn't already hobble broke.

braiding looks pretty good, it pretty hard to keep the paracord flat when you pull the core, i saw one mistake in one of the knots but a non braider would not notice and probably love that as a gift.

I use to do alot of scroll sawing, here is a example of that work. Hoping to get good enought at braiding to give gifts to some special people in my life. Like the ones that I made the woodwork for. My biggest project was the whole lords pray cut out of walnut wood, then put on a mirror backing and framed. I spent about 300 hours on it, and worked very hard to get it done in order to give it to my grandmother before she passed away, it is now in my parents home. I love the gift of giving but I do want my gift to be of good workmanship so really really wanting to get good at this. 5-19-08.jpg 88.95KB 14 downloads
