Knot boards

Since my days as a Scout Leader, I've been fascinated with knot boards. The examples of excellent ropework fascinate me, and some are more technically difficult than others. You can tell how talented a person is with ropework by the knots on the board.
And so, today when I came across a knot board on Facebook, I had to share it.

This one is from the Scouting and Guiding Federation of Turkey, and actually made by Cengiz Yılmaz.
For all of my former Scouts who read this, I hope you can tie at least half of these and name most of them.
