Here’s an interesting braid for you guys to try:

Is this like those "For Dummies" books??? Not sure whether I should be excited to have a step-by-step video example to work off of as I play around with paracord or be insulted that your sending me the "An idiot's guide to Wraps"!?! HaHa!!! Just Kidding! You know it just P*#^* Me Off that I'm not on this project yet. Two days missed, the last two days this week with pesky doctors appts really puts a cramp in my style. Today's Dr appt turned into Gilligan's Island and the 3 hour never ending tour. The only good news, when I returned home a friend had stopped by and dropped off some supplies to keep Mom's project rollin. So now I just need no rain. So SP if you know any non-rain dance's or keep the rain away dance's start dancing your tail off! I've started a new fund. Right next to the vaca fund is the 1TG Bag/Pouch fund. Still not really going over well with the misses. Haha!!! Want to bet which one gets filled quicker? Haha!!!

Hey kidding aside thanks for the vid man. I appreciate it Bro! I really need one of those slings or a new pouch to really do this paracord thing right. I'll figure it out somehow, I always do. That's why I'm the Fixer or Problem Solver.

Instead of paracord could you use similar diameter outdoor/climbing rope? Just wondering, no real reason behind the question.

Ha ha ha....😝
You can use any rope or string, even leather, but be warned, some ropes are a pain to untie if you make a mistake! (Try not to use a stretchy cord...I have when I braided my dive-watch strap...that is a real pain!

You might have noticed that I play with self-made blades. This brought me to a need for a tool to sharpen and shape my own blades, which created a dilemma: which is best...
After some thought I decided there is only one way out of this - make my own!
Hope these pics would inspire some of you to follow suit!
So the result:

No, thanks man like I said it was more of a general question. Not something I was looking to try. Just something that I was curious about. Kick Ass job on that watch band!!! That is definitely not something I'll be trying anytime soon. Haha!!!

Man could I get into some fun at a BBQ at your house! Haha!!! I'll bring my own hockey mask since you already have the collection of axes!

You're so nice to your EDC. And you made fun of me for saying I'd marry one. You're basically dating, or in some states, countries depending upon length of time you've had, common law marriage kicks in, so you could be married already to your EDC!!!
Oh that brings up some interesting future modifications! 🤭

So while watching the royal wedding, clutching a small Union-Jack in one hand and a big box of tissues in the other - gosh was she pretty (sniff sniff sigh) I played with a very easy little braid (oh what a magic wedding...! Wink wink smile) This braid would make a pretty little bracelet.

Haha!!! I hate you my friend! Just keep rubbing it in. Trust me at some point very soon you are going to wish you never got me going on this weave. Haha!!! You'll be hating life as I'm tying shoe laces as your showing me how to braid. Haha!!!! The thought of you watching the wedding is frightening! All I can think about is you are sitting in the same chair you tasered yourself in! Haha!!! Cheers Mate! On a serious note the weave looks wicked, like a rattlers tail.

((Had to let that chair go - it had a very particular smell afterwards...😜))

Bahaha Haha Bahaha Hahaha!!! Just lost my Cheerios I was trying to eat all over the kitchen laughing. OMG man twice in one week you've had me laughing hard enough to restart my own heart. What a shame about the chair! I hope you had a little private ceremony something similar to the royal wedding yesterday decommissioning her.
