    Finishing up.

    Hi all, I am very new to paracord having been using it for only about a week now. Due to a decline in health I've found myself looking for a hobby that requires less energy and I decided I'd start making dog leashes and collars from paracord. I've done a 4, 6 and 8 cord weave and also a cobra weave lead so far. And done a double cobra collar.

    The biggest problem I am having isn't how to finish it off in a manner that looks decent. I am generally fairly happy with my work but my finishing always leaves me feeling disappointed with it. I don't know wether I am missing something or if it's something that just comes from having a good eye for it?

    Spent a fair bit of time on a leash today which I absolutely loved right up until it came to finishing. I took it out and redone it a few times as well. Eventually got too tired and just went with it.

    Any advice would be massively appreciated (The photos are of today's leash).

    Thanks, that website looks like it could be very useful. I've had a good look around it, will save it for future reference.

    So from your response can I take it that it's just a case of learning to have an eye for it rather than there being a specific technique?

    Your finish does not look terrible but using something that is flat and smooth like the tip of a screwdriver or the like will get you a smoother finish.
