I was inspired to build my own Rope Barometer after seeing one at a golf course.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Getting Started
I went to the store and bought some wood but any wood you have around can work. I also bought some rope, I wanted to use natural-fibre rope instead of nylon rope only because I thought it would look better.
Step 2: Screen Printing the Graphics
I could have used a variety of methods to print on the graphics but I decided to screen print them on. I understand that it is probably the most difficult way but I think it looks the best. Basically I wanted to learn how to screen print too. I bought a screen printing kit from a local art supply store. After reading about the different ways to screen print I decided to use the Photo Emulation method.
Step 3: Add the Rope
Simply drill a hole, slip the rope through, and tie a not at both ends.
Step 4: Clear Coat
I added a clear coat to protect the silkscreen ink from the elements.
Step 5: Final Project
And here is the final project! I hope you enjoyed this instructable!
