I started wrapping the guides on our anniversary rod.  Japanese silk tread, blue and black.  Three turns of thread make the black tippings.



Tip #1 all wrapped.  That was the easy part.  Now I have to make tip #2 a mirror image of #1.  




After a two-day hiatus, back at it tonight (23 Feb 2018).  Good alignment on the first two wraps. Of tip #2.
