Nice use of color & sprawl, matisse.
I like ishypuupy's rug, too.

great thread!

here's more in the chair dept. these uncomfortable items knocked around our family for years until i decided to do something about retired ropes. i got the weaving info from a website, for the seats, and improvised the backs. i love the floormats people are making--that'll be for the next "retirement".

that seat weave rides up with the heavy ropes, so i did that knotting underneath to pull it down flat. the ropes are way more comfortable than the old paper wicker.

Cool chairs. Wish I had some that style that I could use.

Alright- I was tossing out old ropes and you guys inspired me to try my first rope rug. I used one that got passed down from Dirtineye. Sort of a memorial mat I guess. It had the prettiest colors in any case. It took forever to make it tight.

I used the instructions off this post on Summitpost:

http://www.summitpost.org/so-you-want-to-make-a-rope-rug-eh/263578 The guy's written instructions are a little obtuse at points, but I'm good with pictures and the photos/diagrams are good.

Not sure how most people bind the edges to keep the strands from separating when you handle it. I used fabric glue and glued all the outside edges on the backside to keep the strands in order.

Nice chairs Tony. Much more artistic than my lawn chair utilitarian version.

Anyone ever made a hammock from old ropes?

This is about a 35-year-old piece I made for my folks; came back to me after they passed away. Remember how hard it was to cut the leg-split in the Lost Arrow. I tried to emulate Roger Briggs' stemming style.
I thought lots of people would have to do this kind of thing with "obsolete" pins, not realizing they're still making the damned things.
So much for clean climbing.

this stuff rocks, but I really like the doors, and the wind chime
