Plaiting Finished

Plaiting Finished

Yesterday I finished plaiting the overlay and attaching the fall to the 8 foot bullwhip that I’m working on:

I also tied the transition knot:

The next step for this bullwhip will be to build the heel knot foundation and after that I’ll tie the final turks head.  Then it’s time for the bullwhip to be rolled, shellac’d and shipped.

  1. I love the look of this whip! I made a black 12 plait last year with the same O2 U2 over the handle and really like the variation.

    Tell me, did you taper the strands much for the first half of the whip? Or was is subtle?

    1. The strand definately taper the first part of the whip. I didn’t do an strand drops until the end of the 2nd belly, so they all tapered. I felt like I was constantly resizing them.
