Rope trim?

Recommended Posts

We are thinking of putting manilla(hemp) rope in our new house along the top of the wall where it meets the ceiling. The interior is all T&G pine ceiling and the walls are log siding. My question is does anyone have a suggestion of how to keep the ends from unraveling when it is cut to length. My thought was to put a wrap of black tape for some contrast but the wife don't like the tape idea. Thoughts anyone, type of clear glue or wax?

Do you care if it shows? How about a thin pice of wire about the same color of the rope. Wrap the rope with the wire before you cut it.

Put a short piece of 4X4 knotty pine "plinth block" in the corners with a large dado (size of the rope)in the end. Then, just use the black tape method but it will be hidden behind the overlaying corner blocks.

OOPS, that wpont work because of the log siding on the walls.

Or, wrap the ends with tape about an inch from the end of the rope, trying to keep the rope as tight as you can at the ends. Then, dip or spread some white glue or some other product that will dry clear and wrap tight with tape. Let it dry, and remove the tape. if it appears that more glue is needed, repeat the procedure.

Or, wrap the ends with fireline chrystal.

Or, get a rebar/rerod twist tie, from a concrete guy and do one wire twist around the end, twist it tight, and place the twist at the back of the rope.

    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
