I'll do a few more get my design/pattern kinks out I might try (got the wood for the 2nd one on the lathe).

Problem is l once I cover materials, and include a little something for the time I'd have a hard time parting with one for less than $800ish, that's getting the lumber for cheap too. Kind of a hard pill for most folks to swallow, when they can get the cracker barrel one for $180 (even though it's got a 250lb weight limit that mine would laugh at)

That's pretty awesome right there.

Be pretty cool to pick out what color/s paracord to make one out of if did offer them made to order.

It's probably close to 1500 foot. I'll have to see how it holds up, dunno if I'll use it again there probably 15 hours in weaving that.

This is the leftover from 2 brand new 1000 ft spools https://i.imgur.com/OaptcZQ_d.jpg?maxwidth=640&shape=thumb&fidelity=medium

Dang. Yeah it looks very time consuming. But looks great.
My luck I'd get just about to the end weaving it then look up and realize I boogered it up back at the beginning.

Looks great, but the paracord looks wide and flat. All I have ever seen has been round.

Around 1950 my country uncle split some oak and soaked it in water and wove the bottom in an old straight back chair. It worked but was NOT comfortable to sit in.

My neighbor (now deceased) used to recane chairs. He taught classes in it and recaned chairs for casinos, restaurants, etc. There was quite a bit of demand for his services.

I bought the stuff and an instruction book and set out to recane the bottom in my wife's bent wood chair. I finally gave up. It was way too tedious for me. I finally replaced the chair bottom with a piece of plywood and covered it, and she's happy.

Nice! I've made a few tables, but like you, trying to sale them is out of the question. Lots of hours involved in that type of work. Yours has great detail to them!

I do not know if he used the gutted cord But they make a cord with out the inside strands. that is what i use to make whips. it is flat and a lot easier to work with.
flat it is 5mm wide, round it is 4mm
