thanks, shaman, ben and ben.

the lashing is one long continuous piece. it was a little tough. i had to braid the middle, lash it around and then braid the ends together for a bit, then split them and braid them into individual cords. i tied a few loops aroung the splits to help hold it together.

thanks again.
