If you are into survival knowing how to tie knots can be very useful. Making this stand help me understand how to tie different knots for different situations. I used paracord for the cordage for this project. You can add any other knots that suit you best.

Nice board, but you might want to trim and melt the ends to neaten it a bit. I'm about to get my son to make one and make one of fishing knots for myself(with paracord). Also I'm kind of a fan of using two pins to attach the knots.

Need more people making knot boards and making new arrangements
