Right now I’m working on an 8 foot Indy bullwhip. I had a couple of hides show up yesterday morning from Paul Nolan:
The natural tan one is 66dm and that’s the one that I’m using for this Indy Bullwhip. I trimmed the hide:
The core and wear leather are attached to the handle foundation:
Then I cut out the bellies and wrist loop:
You’ll see that I have all three parts being cut at the same time, I do that to use up the “ears” of the hide which are very stretchy in one direction and it’s a part I’d usually trim off. But cutting this way allows me to use the for the yoke of sets.
Here’s all the internal kangaroo parts cut out:
With Easter tomorrow and a full performing schedule today, I don’t think any more work will be done on this bullwhip until Monday.
