Figure eight follow through on a bight? Or just the plain figure eight follow through.

Whats in the sack? Because the "full of C@$P" thread is over in the off topic thread. Hehe.
Depends on what you want to achieve. Heres a link to start, and it even has the Turks head!

I believe a properly positioned Turk's head can generate up to 200 amphours/day, if you click your heels three times.

You could just use a Crown Royal sack, its already got the strings in it.

Hey Vasco, you're needed on the Elan thread.

Talking Finishing Off the Turks Head

I have tried a Turks Head before and been able to tie it, but how do you finish it off so the ends don't show, but the knot stays together. I would like to end up with a professional look!

Thanks,
Tom
