Picture of Welcome Mat Woven With Polyester Lashing

At my work, they get materials shipped in that are strapped down with this polyester lashing. They cut it off and throw it away. I dumpster dive and get a couple of pieces every once and awhile. You know how it goes, you don't know what you are going to use it for, but you know you will use it. I used some to make a overhead canoe storage system: https://www.instructables.com/id/Canoe-Trapeze-Overhead-Storage-Rack/ and I want to make a cargo net. I was also wanting to make a woven weighted blanket, but I wanted to make something woven small first. The woven welcome mat is what I made.

Do not burn yourself or your house. Be safe.

Looks very durable! Nice job :)

I am a little worried about fraying from scuffing boots, but so far it is holding up well. Thank you for the comment.
