Calling all cars, calling all cars...

I've seen people from this board build everything from parelletes to k-bells to that groovy O-lift bar and platform on the WOD the other day. SOMEBODY help me figure a way to build a cargo net. I've checked knot sites, sailing and rigging sites, ad naseum - nothin'. With the resources we have here we've got to be able to figure this out. It's not that I'm cheap it's just that I'm, well, cheap. And I really like making my own stuff. Makes me feel all old school.

Here is a site on netting that I have used to make a hammock, it should work for you.

Tony;
I was thinking of building one also and then I found a 12x12 heavy duty one at a military surplus store for $39.00.

That is actually cheaper than it would cost to make your own. It will also take a lot of time as it is not an easy task.

That looks good Kevin but I bet it's nylon web. I was going for rope...
