Shoestring

I think this might be a good idea, but also, this could be really stupid:

I'm going to make words out of shoestring. It will include a lot of ligatures, and 'space-glyph' and glyph-sapce' -thingies.

Cool.
I would dump the aglets and make it telephone cables instead.

But, at least, it isn't rodeo-inspired! ;-)

Bugger; Shoelace is just too easy. And Hrant; I can always just change those aglets to telephone or USB. Or power outlet. Or HDMI connection. And I just might. In fact I can have an infinite amount of variants just by changing the ends ;·}

I think what would be ideal is if the "endings"
were not on each letter, but on each word.

With OT, that is given. My idea is to build a lot of ligaures totally connected, and then change in the "endings" and "beginnings".

This is how far I've gotten:

I am stumped with 't'. What can I use as a crossbar?

I bet a knot would work.

I guess that is the way to go, but how to make it look good… I think I have to do the same thing with comma.

If you keep the shoestring metaphor, you could place two tittles from wich a string enters and exits.
