I am able to measure cord, and make 3 different sizes of bracelets with this jig, so it comes in handy if you are making bracelets for custom orders.
The block is 12" inches long. I typically start with an 8' length of cord, and I can easily measure that length if I don't have a tape measure handy.
The cord can arranged in 3 different positions to give 3 different lengths - see image.
This instructable is for making the jig. I do not cover how to actually tie the paracord bracelets.
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
-2" x 4" x 12" block of wood
-4 - 90degree brackets (I used brackets from a Steel Tec Erector Set I got when I was a kid)
-2 plastic buckles* - These are what I use for my paracord bracelets. Optional for what you use.
-4 small zip ties
-4 multi-purpose screws (I used 1-1/4" drywall screws
-power drill, screwdriver
-Circular saw/hand saw for cutting the wood
Step 2: Measure and Cut 12" Block of 2 X 4
Step 3: Secure Brackets to Block
Step 4: Secure Buckles to Brackets
Step 5: End Result
You can tie 3 different lengths of bracelets.
Markings are optional, but helpful to show the different positions you can use to tie bracelets.
