Some mat work.

Cotton mat with Dad's ole Navy Colt that has engraving of tall ships on the cylinder. 

4 little thump mats I tied for a knot board project. 

Knotted Picture Frame

A knotted picture frame using almost 40' of nylon line. This is the link to a tutorial I made for this project. 

Rope grommet with a couple of ole fishing lures Uncle Jim gave me.

Some early work

So I thought I'd show a use I came up with that allowed the good ole' rope ladder (found in The Marlinspike Sailor by Hervey Garrett Smith) to come back to a useful life and make the little woman happy at the same time. Unfortunately, I didn't get to reap the rewards I thought I'd get as I broke one of her lighthouse plates (notice the clock) while hanging them on homemade hooks made from coat hangers. 

A monkey's fist key fob I gave to a friend. 

Another one for another friend. 
Same monkey fist key fob after a repair.

She loves them because they're high in Vitamin K!
