Making a Chest Becket
Making a Chest Becket is another beautiful way of showing off your decorative ropework skills! Often making a Ditty Bag is a good way of showing off your skills. This may also be more preferable to some people as you often travel around with your Ditty Bag. Mind you there is no reason why you could not use a Chest Becket as part of your Ditty Bag handle?
Normally a Chest Becket as the name suggests is actually a rope handle on either end of a seaman’s wood chest. Therefore making it more of a static object, and more difficult to show off your skills.
