I recently became interested in net making.  All that you really need to make nets is a net needle and a gauge board.  The gauge board is a simple piece of wood that makes the specific mesh size of the net.  The ones I have been using are just a board that is 1.5″ x 6″ and about 1/8″ thick.  I have been using a needle that I made pretty quick that is a little small so I decided to make a better one.

This one is 1 inch wide and 9 inches long.  It is also just 1/8″ think and made from red oak.  These are made to wind the cord around so that it acts as a bobbin holding the cord and allowing you to thread it through the net as you go.
