Post  camprn on 7/5/2014, 10:55 pm

I was asked to do a tutorial on trellis web weaving.
I am posting just photos as I have no one to hold the phone camera to make a video.
I will add the captions tomorrow.

And then repeat with the other stapled cross twine? It's really pretty clear without having a video. Thanks, Camp

Wow! Easy peasy! Thanks, Camp. Altho I seem to have forgotten all my knot knowledge learned during my sailing days. Are those slipknots at the top and bottom? Also what type of knots are at the cross sections?

at the top are overhand loop knot around the taut horizontal lines at top and bottom.. The horizontal spacing lines have single half hitches that hold the vertical lines at the appropriate space from each other.

Here's my first effort at making a trellis.  Yea, I made a mistake in the design, but it was fun to do.  It's also crocked and I only had ice tea! The background trellis is the nylon trellis from HD. The homemade on is in front.

That looks awesome and will totally work. I use sisal twine with mine so that after harvest I either cut or uproot the plants, cut the sidelines and finally the top strings and compost the whole sheet of vines, twine and all.

I used heavy cotton twine which is easier on my fingers.

Since I typed the word crocked, no one will believe I only had ice tea!  Embarassed

Post  CapeCoddess on 8/3/2014, 2:41 pm

sanderson, are you sure that was a long island ice tea? Lol

I just finished making to the worlds crockedest and useless trellis. .. and I don't drink spirits.

Hints to those going to make a trellis:

number 1 - read the tutorial above before you do it. I didn't, thinking I'd remember it and I did it totally wrong.

number 2 - don't use bamboo stakes. They bend as your attaching the twine and everything becomes floppy.

when we have the world's ugliest trellis contest I'll post a photo.  Embarassed

CC the horizontal strings should be wrapped around the vertical strings. This allows for stabilizing and secure spacing of all lines.

A person doesn't need to be gifted. If the skill of tieing shoes is had, the same skill can make this trellis web.

Mini-Me

The nylon trellis was 2 feet too short for the snow peas, so I made a baby trellis addition.  It's fun.

This reminds me of my Dad stringing a trellis for the beans back in 1948.  We had a tobacco farm and therefore a supply of twine and "tobacco" sticks.  Daddy would put in a stick about every 3 ft and then use this 3 horizontal line, multiple vertical line weave that looked like a series of Vs every 2".  Guess I just learned from him.

Thanks, Teach. I wish I had a flat wood shuttle instead of chasing a dropped ball of string. Also, the ball can't be threaded in tight spaces. For riight now, I wrap the string around a flattened TP roll!

My dad made one for me 55 years ago for a small home made loom. Wish I still had it. Sad

that's why I just tie it at the bottom and top instead of going under and over.

Couple Mini-me for beans.  These only took a few minutes each now that I have the hang, and the cat doesn't help. The nylon trellis was too short so these help the beans get up to the main trellis. Thanks for teaching us how to do it, Camp.
