1) wooden dowel rod or closet rod 1 1/2" Diameter about 3 feet long (you will have some scrap left over either 1 foot or 4 inches).
1) 3/8 drill bit and power 1/2 drill * BE CAREFUL IF YOU HAVE NEVER USED A DRILL ASK SOMEONE
WHO KNOWS HOW TO USE IT SAFELY*
1) Vice (to hold the dowel rod safely while drilling)
1) Crosscut handsaw or bandsaw or jigsaw if you have access to one (just for a cleaner cut)
1) Tape measure to measure the length of the dowel rod
(*Measure it twice and cut once* <-Rule of construction meaning you measure it twice then mark it and then cut it because you can always cut off more, but you can't add on to that which has had too much cut off)
1) 3-foot section of 3/16 NYLON BRAIDED ROPE
1) Book of matches or cigarette lighter (to melt the cut ends so that they don't unravel)
1) 3" long nail (this will help fish the rope through the holes be careful so as not to jab yourself requiring a tetanus shot)
1) Flathead screwdriver
2) Adjustable band clamps 1 1/2"
*Nunchucks (1 1/2 inch dia. about 12" long or 16" depending if your about 6 feet tall or taller just to make them easier to use).
Step 1: Step 1
Step 1) Take dowel rod or closet rod and using either a hand saw (mark your rod with a pencil then use a band clamps tightened just enough so that it doesn't move on either side of the line and saw this will give you a straight cut), jig saw or band saw and cut it into 2 pieces either 12" long if you are shorter than 6 feet tall 16" if you're taller *because of bigger hands and longer arms and body parts the Nunchucks have to go around parts of your body.

Sequence to Tie a Slip Knot:
Slip Knot Step 1. Start by folding a loop under to make two loops. By beginning the knot this way you can choose which side of the slip knot will slip to tighten or untie.
Step 2. If you want the left side to slip, pass the left loop through the right loop; if you want the right side to slip, pass the right side through the left loop. As shown, the left rope is the slipping side.
Step 3. Tighten the slip knot by hand around the loop so it tightens evenly.
And you are done just remember THIS IS A WEAPON AND NOT A TOY so if you hit yourself in the head and cause yourself a concussion or hurt yourself reproductive wise you were WARNED!
*Side note this can also be used for a 3 sectional staff using three 3 foot (cut down to 33 inches except for the center rod which is 30 inches = 9 feet) 1 1/2 inch dia. dowel rods the middle rod will have to be drilled on both ends and more rope maybe needed of course.
