Tell us about yourself!
Great Instructable!!!!!, when you said this is not a project for a beginner, I should have listened, hehe, lots of frustration, but it came out ok I think, The hardest part was the Core!! just couldn't get it nice and round, took my overlay off and did it over, and then the Mathew warker after the Star knot, just couldn't get that to work, so I did a 5x4 dubble pass Turks Head over the cords instead.
One more thing, can you show us how to do the Matthew Walker over the handle, PLEASE!!!
