Hello Peta.

Stunning work.

I bet the grandson is missing his Lego ? Or did you purchase it just for rope making.

Hey. These are perfect ropes. So far you are one who does ropes better than anybody I had seen.

I've got to agree with Quote above.  First class.


Regards Antony.

Hi Antony,

thanks for your comment. Lego bricks comes from one very old set from my childhood. I have many Lego sets and still like to build something time to time. Those few bricks will not be even recognized in the quantity I have :D

I take all my courage and started with my bigest chalenge. I don't like the way Panart did the headrails. They use only shaped brass wire. I want to make them from wood. I started with shaping the main rails. I believe I'm very close to the "OK" fit but still some work to be done.
