yes i would like to have a look at your plans.in ply splitting we have to make our own cords and they may prove to useful to me in that.as for the cords like that used for washing line i haven't tried it much for any bigger project but mean to do so.the problem only its being available in just white colour so i will have to dye it.

Just thought I'd point out that if you're using cotton twine,
remember that you can use fabric dyes to color the cotton twine
before you build it up into a rope. From my experiance, its best to
flake the twine neatly in a large clean coffee can, then slowly add
the dye solution until it covers the twine.
