New to the site, I am very interested in making a reata. I watched a video on YouTube just for fun, and the guy cuts the rawhide wet and hangs it on the fence then scrapes it then throws it in a tank and fleshes then sizes it down into strings. What I would like to know is all the tools I will need to start this project.

Wow!  That was an interesting video!  Wonder how many man hours go into making one of these?

I’ve read around and about 70 hours for some.

I can believe it, but hardly seems worth it.  If pay rate is $20/hr, that’s a $1400 rope!  Sure looks nice though.

Would really like to braid one. Might just buy rawhide then cut the string though
