Netting

Post  zomo on 4/22/2012, 8:24 pm

I made my own netting out of nylon cord. They look good now to see if they will work. I looked it up on youtube its called a Gill net. Keep me out of trouble for a couple of days Twisted Evil Oh and if I get lost in the forest I can now make a hammock and a fishing net. Provided I have the cord to make it with Very Happy

Made my first attempt at making some, but it didn't go so well.. Hopefully my second attempt should turn out better..



It came out a bit short.. Will have to remember next time to make lengths longer is all..

I made one of mine to short just added extra length to the bottom and it worked out ok. It is not the prettiest but I couldn't see wasting so I worked with it . I will try and take pictures and post Smile Try is the word LOL

No worries, it didn't go to waste.. I was using jute twine so what I didn't use goes towards my reenacting gear for my fire bag and such..Smile



Which vid did you watch, "bushcraft bums" or some other ??

Ok so I hope this works. Here is a picture of my netting and the rest of my garden. All the panels are to keep dogs out of garden. They each come off individually so I can have easy access. Some of the trellis's are doing double duty acting as a fence. We built the beds last year but just started SFG this year. We still have a lot to learn but it is so much fun.

I didn't really count but lets say I could probably make two in one day. I did some inside and some outside. I looped my lengths of cord right over the bar on the ones I made outside and it seemed to work better and look neater.

Your garden is looking great. I love the idea of movable fencing panels to keep out the critters and so that you can work in the beds. Good job. The gill netting looks like a fine job. Let us know how it works our for you.

The video's are on Youtube Gill Netting should get you there. Each panel comes off seperately They are on legs that slide through brackets. I guess you could move the trellis's but I won't move those unless I decide to store them for the winter.
