Kangaroo Skin…

Kangaroo Skin…

Up next is a 3 foot 12 plait signal whip (single tail) in natural tan and black. I had a bit of black kangaroo left, however not enough for this whip, so I went up to David Morgan and picked up this skin:

It’s 57 dm, and I didn’t need much of it for the signal whip. I’m hoping they’ll be enough leftover for 6 foot bullwhip. There’s plenty for a 5 foot whip, but hoping for enough for a 6 foot.

8 Foot Indiana Jones Style Bullwhip

8 Foot Indiana Jones Style Bullwhip

Recently I started work on an 8 foot Indiana Jones Style Bullwhip. This will be made from kangaroo and made with the correct visual to match the whip from the movies.

Currently this whip has all of the internal layers finished, and I just cut out the 12 plait overlay:

Next step will be tacking on the lead load to the base of the handle, then plaiting the overlay!

7 Foot Beginner’s Bullwhip

7 Foot Beginner’s Bullwhip

Currently I’m finishing up using a side of leather I bought for a custom project. Earlier I made three bullwhips that were five and a half feet. What was left of the leather was enough to make a seven foot bullwhip. I’ve got all of the leather cut out and the belly finished:

Hopefully I’ll have time to finish this bullwhip by Monday!
