    The previous non-video tutorial is here. Constriction suspensions are also discussed here.

    I think that splicing the fixed eye and the tail end creates a much cleaner finished product, but it's certainly not necessary.

    Thanks for the videos...they are a nice resource for the visual learners among us!

    Thanks a lot for the nice words. I know the video is rough, but hopefully I'll get more polished as time goes by.

    Ep 2 will be making a simple windscreen to fit a certain size pot.

    Nice videos - its always good to see the same thing described in a different way. Or actually done slightly differently from how someone else does it. Videos show things still pictures can not and vice versa.

    Here is a link to another video I found helpful too in showing how to make a whoopie sling, fixed eye and adjustable loop. In this case I think attaching it to a HH.

    I LOVE video tutorials. They're a valuable resource to go along with the written and photographic variety. Thanks and well done!

    Rope Tree Huggers?

    I enjoyed your whoopie tutorial.

    I noticed that you have rope tree huggers.

    Are they working OK for you?

    If they are damaging the bark on your trees, I recommend Strapworks.com

    They have some simple slings for around $8 each (1 1/2" wide poly straps with 4" eyes on each end and 5' long) or they can custom make what you want.
