6 foot Bullwhip Finished!

6 foot Bullwhip Finished!

Today I finished this 6 foot bullwhip.  Here’s the beginning of the 12 plait overlay:

Currently I’m starting my braid by doing about 2 inches of the overlay without the rest of the whip inside it.  I braid just enough so that I the underside of the braid is built up, then I stick in the handle of the bullwhip and tighten  up the braid.

I just boxed up this bullwhip and it’s going out to its new owner tomorrow.
