    DIY Net Making (DIY Tools) Part 1

    Nets have a variety of uses on board a sailboat. They can also be expensive. Save big bucks making them yourself and Iíll show you how.

    First, youíll need the tools, but you can make those yourself as well and Iíll show you how in this video. Iíve also prepared a FREE full-size netting needle template and put it in a pdf format. You can download this free and print it out. You can then paste it to some thin wood and cut it out. Just a little bit of sanding to clean it up and youíre good to go.
    .
    Hereís the link for the FREE pdf download page: https://www.downeastthunder.com/2020...-tools-part-1/

    Once you have the tools, Iíll show you how to actually make simple nets in a subsequent video.

    Nets (in different shapes and sizes) are used in the cabin to suspend fresh fruits and veggies, used as laundry bags, snorkeling and diving gear bags, etc. Nets are added to stanchions and safety lines around the boat (mostly on offshore cruisers), and of course you can make nets for fishing. These are just a few suggestions but no doubt you can think of many more

    SOÖÖ. whatís ahead? Boat building continues with metal working projects such as making various brackets, gudgeons, pintles, fittings, and so forth. There will also be smaller woodworking projects for the new sailboat that will take place in the shop. In addition, Iíll be posting more videos on other subjects, ranging from furniture & kidís toys, Farm & Homestead items, and art projects (my usual winter activity).

    Here's the video:
