How To Whip the End of a Line

06 Feb 18:

When we cut a piece of rope to make a line, we finish the ends with a waxed whipping twine so it won't unravel. Materials used are gaff tape, waxed whipping line and New England Rope Vintage line. It's fun, we get to run with scissors and burn stuff. Tools needed are scissors and a lighter, and sometimes pliers to pull the twine if the wraps were too tight.
