Basic Net Making
« on: September 05, 2017, 10:13:14 AM »
I am re-posting these instructions because Photobucket will no longer allow 3rd party viewing of the items I have stored there.  You can no longer see them in my September 2013 post ansd I can no longer edit the original post to include them.

I have enjoyed making nets for over 40 years. I wrote these instructions in the early 1980's at the request of a spectator at one of my net making demonstrations. They have stood the test of time.

Thanks, I saved this one to my hard drive which I didn't do with the other one.

Thank you for taking the time to update the old 'pictureless' thread.....those instructions are too good not to have available for all to learn a valuable skill! :thumbsup:

Thank you for taking the time to make those terrific instructions, asemery!

I saved them and have a new project to add to my list.

  Awesome!

  Guess I gotta go carve myself a net making tool soon..
