Beautiful craftsmanship. Someone spent a lot of time making these athame`
Here is a completed section of rope/cord. It took me about a half hour to make a 9 foot section. It started as three 12 foot sections of yarn. I made three of these. They came out a bit thinner than I wanted. But a fun afternoon project.
Rope making machine, part three. Here is the completed machine. Very simple. I made a guide for the yarn to keep it from tangling while it’s being twisted. The yarn guide kept slipping off, and i modified it to hold the yarn better, but it didn’t work well.
Rope making machine, part 2. Here is one piece of wood with the coat hanger pieces fed through the holes and bent into cranks. When you turn these, it will twist the yarn. An identical piece of wood becomes the crank.
Decided to craft a rope making machine today. I need to make some ceremonial cords. Here is the hobby wood and 3” pieces of a thick coat hanger. The ends of the metal wire are bent into loops to form hooks for yarn.
