wrapping oars my jig

Just wanted to pass on an idea that may be of use to you guys and gals, i was searching information and it brought me to this forum and a lot of you gave me ideas and information. thought maybe this might help some of you out.
I built this jig to help me wrap my oars cost was about 10 bucks and found in scrap piles at the metal salvage and construction sites.
I took a piece of uhmw and drilled an 1/8 hole threw the center then cut a slit 3/4 the way threw so rope could go in easy. I then found a peace of pipe that the uhmw would fit in cut 1/4 out of it so i could clamp it around the uhmw also clamped one end tighter so the further you push the uhmw in the more tension goes on the rope. then made a small stand to hold it at the right angle to wrap the oars. I found some scrap fleece at the craft store and glued onto the 1 by 6 that i previously cut to cradle the oars. screwed it all together and used a small eye bolt and a broken rubber bungee for a brake In case i was interrupted or needed a Pepsi in the process. works great wraps oars really tight and sure makes it nice when you can use both hands on the oar and not have to touch the rope yes i was bored and it was raining outside

Did you tuck the ends under or just glue them down? Tucking would have used up a few feet by the time it was over.

I laid 4 frayed inches under the wrap to start then put 7 loose wraps at the end of the wrap and pulled the rope under it, I left 3 foot to grab onto and pull with all my might why standing on the oar then hammered down the bulge . I then epoxied the last 6 wraps and tapered them down to the oar shaft on both ends. It was a long wrap ended up being 27.5 and that was 77 foot of 3/16
