The Ashley Book of Knots by Clifford Ashley
Cindy McHaddon sent in this cool rope slide:
"I've been looking for unique ideas for sliders and your page is fantastic. Thought you might like the slider our Cub Scouts from Pack 680 (Ford City, PA) used at their Blue and Gold Banquet this year. It was pretty basic design but the Scouts loved them.
We used clothesline cut into 4 inch strips. We had to melt the ends to keep from fraying. Since most cheap clothesline is made from nylon, this step should be done by the adults so that the scouts do not get burnt by the melted nylon. We then painted one strip blue and one strip yellow. After the paint dried, we assembled a square knot and fused a strip of clothesline on the back for the slider part."
