In my first Instructable I showed how to make a paracord jig from a yardstick. In this tutorial we will adapt and use the Yardstick Paracord Jig I made prevously to make the Traveling Paracord Jig shown here. I originally never intended to make the the jig with storage, it was more evolutionary. So the idea for making this came to me, thinking that it would be great to take some paracord and basic supplies on a short trip such as camping, road trip, hiking, anywhere you have some spare time. It would make a gift for a young aspiring paracord crafter. 

*I have several individuals ask what a paracord jig is used for. Its an aid for tying bracelets for the most part using parachute cord.

Step 1: Materials / Tools


3 feet of 1/4 by 2 1/4 wood
Yardstick Paracord Jig (my other instructable)
Set of hinges
Wood plane / sand paper
Stain (optional)
Disk magnets
Thumb screw 1 1/4 inches long
Small door knob about 1/2 inch
<p>nice thank you</p>
<p>I love this instructable thank you so much</p>
<p>why do u have to plane the door??</p>
I like the background on the last three photos<br>
This is even better than just the jig. I can see the possibility of several different styles/designs. I was going to make the jig. Now I will have to make it with storage. Great instructable.
