Natural cordage Dog bane

Come with me as is show you one of the best natural materials for making natural cordage. At the end I will do a strength test on the cordage I have just made.

Here are some pictures of some Dog bane in winter note the redish brown colour.

You can really see the redish brown colour in this picture

Note how the alot of the branches grow at 90 degrees from each other

Note the drooping leaves in the top left of the picture

The centre of the shaft is hollow apart from a little bit of a pith on the out side. This one doesn’t look it because I had put it into the snow while I was looking for more and it’s filled with ice.

Bushmade Tarp clips 

If you need a way to attach tarps together or to a line, here is one method to do it. Adding a loop in the para cord at the back gives you a tie off point. These could also be used as clothes pegs as well
