NOTE: dowel sizes given, not accounting for springback


Many people usually use the size of the dowel the rings were wound on, as springback isn't perfectly consistent for every time some rings are wound.

Noted.
Razz without springback neither of those weaves would be physically possible with those weaves.

project.addRing();

Ooooh... Sorry... The word we were looking for is 'rings'...

Thanks Alex,
As a consolation prize, we're offering up an all expenses unpaid trip to New Jersey! Thanks for playing!

No image for you?
Darn it, it's such a nice image too!

It is showing on my computer. I can see it.
I thought I was doing so well that I finally figured out how to post pics.
Anyone else see it or not see it?

It could be the hosting site being blocked for some odd reason at work for me... However I don't know why...

I've had that trouble at work as well. Sometimes employers will block anything from photo sharing sites, even though you can still see the M.A.I.L. site. Now get back to work! Coif LoL

I can see it. I like the color scheme, too. Very nice.

I thought of doing a belt like that, but opted for something more original (I hope). Nothing wrong with yours though, I'm sure, I've always been fond of that design (or one like it).

My Belt, made out of TRL's 18g 5/32 stainless steel rings, and took about 15 hours of work. There are 4,200 rings in the Byzantine strands, but I'm to lazy to count the rings connecting the strands.

This is also the first time posting anything,let alone pictures,so I'm hoping i got it right.
