My current project is plaiting over some metal rods:
I’ve got over a dozen of these rods varying in length from about a foot to about seven or so feet long. Each one will get a little turkshead knot at both ends.
Also I know several readers of the blog are amateur and professional magicians, so I figured I’d mention this. I the August 2011 issue of the M*U*M Magazine which is the magazine for members of the Society of American Magicians there is a two page article about me, so if you are a member check it out!
