second the motion for you to get climbing instruction, read books, practice knots and do all this for some time LONG before you venture out to the cliffs again to set up a questionable rope anchor. I commend you for checking in here at MP for advice, but do hope you learn much more and practice it at safe ground level before trying it out on someone while climbing.

But...with a static, you shouldn't really need to join the ends for building anchors too often. If you need to attach to a tree/rock etc, just use a bowline backed up with a fisherman's. If you need to clip into a piece, use a figure eight on a bight.
