On November 16th, I wrote a blog entry about how to retie straw bales, the new way! The new way is to use the Miller’s knot instead of the trucker’s hitch which has been used for years. In the first half of this two part entry, I showed you the basics of how the knot works and why I use it on all my straw bale homes. In this entry, I have included a video that shows you, in depth, how to tie the knot….well, you know what I mean.
Watch closely as the video below walks you through the steps of how to retie straw bales using the miller’s knot. If you have questions about how this knot works or why it is such a powerful tool for you as a straw bale builder, please comment below and I will try to quickly answer your question.
