Bullwhip with Ostrich Leg Handle Progress…

Bullwhip with Ostrich Leg Handle Progress…

The bullwhip that will have the ostrich leg handle has been making some progress.  I’ve the the outer bolster attached:

And the overlay cut out:

I am  having second thoughts about my choice to sue a thinner spring steel handle over a thicker steel spike.  The main reason I’m doubting this is the thicker handle foundation will make  a thicker handle and show off more of the grain of the ostrich handle.

I did just wrap the ostrich around the handle and it looks fine, you won’t miss out on any of it.  If I do a whip like this again I’ll probably go with a thicker handle to see the difference.

Hopefully today I’ll manage to do the strand prep on the overlay (but not very likely that will happen).
