Knots and Rope techniques can inspire beautiful objects to display throughout your home whatever your style may be. All of my knot art is 100% handmade by me; a lot of love and labour goes into every detail. Hours of meticulous work go into each Knot Board, making them a truly unique handmade statement piece and gift. I make each knot by hand, sew them, and nail them securely on wood. I then use a wood burning tool to hand write the name of each knot.
Weddings, Anniversaries, Birthdays and more

Ropes and knots are among the most ancient and useful technologies ever developed by man; predating the wheel and axe. In the days of sailing ships, sailors had to be rope-tying experts. For the safety of the ship and crew, knots needed to be correctly tied. On a fully rigged ship, several miles of rigging incorporated thousands of knots. There was a different knot for every chore. Tying knots became a craft in itself carried out during long months at sea.
The Knot Board
Historically, Knot Boards were made either as a traning aid aboard ships or in a naval training establishment, or as a demonstration of the knot tyer's skill to be displayed in rigging lofts, chandler's, or given as a gift.
