Oak? That's a bit posh. Haha. I was gonna go collecting and making a few when I'm up and about but can't guarantee they will be oak. Lol.

i just happen to have a few oak boards lol the ones that warp or crack while drying will have a few off cuts? If you pay postage I'll send you some wood ;)

Have you tapered it? Or just a straight run through?

How many meshes wide, mesh board size etc and which video did you watch?

Sorry for all questions, would like to have a go myself.

Made some in the past, but always twist around themselves

Net looks great 👍

Get well 😁

Breeze I might have a bash at a long net but it won't be yet. Lol.

 

Chicken man - I watched 4 different videos and came up with my own method combining the different methods.

 

There is a very good video about 40 mins long by a Geordie bloke. I used his method of knot and I used an Irish guys method of tying the last ring on.

 

I'm using 2" mesh board.

 

I've settled on the following pattern...

 

8, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 17

 

17,17,16,15,14,13,12,11,10,9,8,8

 

That gives a 4' net.

See if you change the two middle 17's into 18's, it gives you a good wide net. I put a different colour twine on for the 17 18 18 17, so I know their mine. It doesn't take long to get into!
