Here’s a pair of 4 foot bullwhips I recently made. It started with a larger kangaroo skin:
Then I cut out the cores and did a 4 plait belly on each whip:
On top of those I put the first bolster:
Then I put a second full length bolster on top of that:
Next up was cutting out the two overlays in 12 plait veg tanned, drum stuffed kangaroo:
After the overlay was plaited, I added the knots:
And finally I shellac’d the whips:
These are now on their way to their new owner!
