Today’s been a busy day for me, I did two shows, put an alternator in my car, rode bikes with my daughter and finished the overlay of a beginners bullwhip! I actually cut out all the layer, did the strand prep and plaited the overlay of the bullwhip.
In the picture above you can see that I’ve got the bullwhip hanging from a hook that’s at the top of the doorframe. On the left side of the picture you can see where I normally plait my bullwhips, and that hook is lower.
What I do when I plait my bullwhips is that I braid on the lower hook, then once the whip is 6 feet long, I move it to the higher hook and keep braiding (for bullwhips longer than 6 feet).
I should be able to find time to finish this bullwhip tomorrow. I need to tie the knots and attach the fall.
