This project started after I saw a similar item on by Petergottm for a Paracord Spool [here - http://www.instructables.com/id/Paracord-Spool/]. I modified mine a little bit because for some odd reason I couldn't get the ends and the pipe to stay cemented together. So I just forced the ends over a couple of extra pieces of electrical tape. Then to manage the lose end I tied it around a hair tie and wound it around. Thanks for the ideas!!
