Oh^^ thank you so much^^ i will find any diameter of jute string for made that chair^^

I love to see that chair.

1.5mm? Ermm.. That string will withstand our weight when we sit on top? Or it will be strong when using a bigger diameter like 2.5mm-3mm?

you can use all dia. because after weave it will be strong itself.

What is the diameter of the jute string?

I think its 1.5mm

What is the diameter of jute string use?

When working with jute like this the product is often fuzzy at the finish. I noticed you trimming the fuzz with scissors in the second video. Back in my macrame days, we would just burn the fuzz off with a lighter. The flame will quickly travel across the surface but not burn the tight portions of cord. It greatly improves the definition of the finished piece. Just watch out for any exposed frayed ends to be sure they're not left smoldering after the quick flash burn.

yeah. Thank you for advised. Will sure try next time.

Look for Woodprix plans if you want to make it eeeeaaasssssyyyyyy
