This week has been a very busy week for me between performing, shipping out orders and squeezing in some family time. The 16 plait bullwhip has the overlay cut out, but no strand prep has happened.
And the nice thing about that is because it’s a two tone bullwhip I actually cut out two complete sets, so once the first one is finished I can make another one pretty quick!
Yesterday I started work on a pair of 4 plait cowhide bullwhips. I normally don’t make these bullwhips to order, you have to get them when I have them in stock. I do this for two reasons:
1. I don’t make a lot of money on them and I don’t want to be backed up making these for not a lot of profit.
2. They aren’t particularly challenging to make, so they aren’t fun for me to make!
However the person I’m making these for called and wanted two of them and I had one in stock. So I figured why not make two of them as a pair to make it more interesting. So I agreed and right now I have the plaiting completed one of them and the other is about 3/4 of the way finished.
I should have time to finish them and ship them out today (hopefully) and then I can get back to work on the 16 plait bullwhip.
