Easy for some. It took me several strings off a cheap spool of material to get the knots down and I built a couple of strings before I got it perfect without screwing something up. Above are just the very very basics. ANd always twist before you serve.

Thanks!
Will do. I thought serving then twisting sounded backwards but I was watching a video to learn so i'm completely new lol
Looking at the videos if I use the 2 blocks or wood with screws in them and all of the threads in the wood, I can make the length of the specs 56 1/2" long. The guy in the video said you make it 1/4" of an inch longer so when you twist it, it will shorten up just a hair and be the exact length I need? Does that sound right?
So since my string is 56 1/2" long I would make it 56 3/4" and when I twist it, it will measure it again and make sure with twists it is 56 1/2"?

I'm going to go ahead and buy a 1# spool so if I mess up I have plenty more string to just make another one until I get it right.

Thanks for the help!

By the time you spend money on making a press , string , serving , along with the headaches and more , you might as well just buy a string and cable set and have him do it . Just giving you some advise before you dive in to this . ;\)
