In this next photo we can see a simple winding block that is stupid-glued to the deck.

The intent is to make two stout loops, of equal length, with the 3/16″ green dacron line. One of the loops is for the top string in our double-string glans shooter, the other is for the bottom string.

Below: Winding the thread whippings on the bottom loop, requires a wedge to lift the string and loop away from the deck.

I fumbled around for 1/2 an hour before wising up and lifting the loop clear of the deck. Threading an eye is so much easier if you have nice big eyes.

I suspect that our finished job is going to look very much like a “sling”.
