Bruce Grant in his "Leather Braiding" book presents an interesting method of storing cord that he calls a "Tamale". I used a 4" wide board here and 10 1/2' of 325 paracord. Attach Standing End to fixed point. There are 6 steps in the process. 1. Wrap cord around board. 2. Bring side Up and Over to new position. 3. Bring edge A clockwise 180 degrees. 4. Wrap cord around board. 5. Turn side A counter-clockwise 180 drgrees. 6. Bring side A Up and Over to original position.
