We've written about similar doorstops with fairly hefty price tags in the past so we were happy to see this Sailor's knot doorstop tutorial that was recently posted over at Design Sponge. Summer hobby, anyone?

This project will run you about $8 for rope, compared to similar items costing upwards of $40. Sure, there is a little bit of a learning curve, but the end result is pretty rewarding. Check out the full tutorial and see lots of photos of the whole process on Design Sponge.
